Vegan Cheese Sauce
When I became vegan one of the hardest things to give up was cheese. Especially nacho cheese sauce. This was one of my favorite foods. If you feel the same way, worry no longer. This recipe is one of the best cheese sauce recipes I have ever had. It's a recipe that I make about once every week or two. I just can't get enough of it. I have a feeling you will feel the same way, once you try it.
1 cup raw cashews
2 cups water
1 red bell pepper
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Place all ingredients in the blender and blend until it is completely smooth, about 5-7 minutes.
