Not-Cho Cheeze Sauce  

Creamy and delicious plant-based nacho cheese-like sauce that can be used for topping vegetables or creating healthier nachos, burritos, or even macaroni and cheese. Nutritional yeast adds the cheese-like flavor, do not use brewers or bakers yeast as it will add a bitter flavor. Nutritional yeast can be found in the condiment section of most grocery stores, at health food stores, or on Amazon. NOTE: For a slightly sweeter sauce, substitute 1 small sweet potato for the carrots.

Ingredients:

Special Equipment:

  • Blender
  •  

    Preparation Method:

    Place the diced potatoes, onions, garlic, and carrots (or sweet potato) into a pot along with 2 ½ cups of water to cover the vegetables. Cover with a lid and bring to a boil, reducing heat as necessary to maintain a simmer. Continue to simmer for 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are easily pierced with a knife or fork.

    Remove from the heat and use a slotted spoon to transfer the vegetables to a blender or food processor, reserving the liquid for blending.

    Add the remaining ingredients and blend to break up the vegetables and combine the seasonings. Add 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid and continue blending, adding additional liquid one tablespoon at a time until you have achieved the desired consistency. Return the mixture to a pot and bring to a simmer over medium heat before serving.
