Cheese! Ooey, gooey goodness. So tasty you will want to lick the bowl clean!
I have never been one for those mystery ingredient vegan cheese substitutes. They never really made any sense to me. If I need to avoid dairy for my health why would I put said mystery ingredients into my body? So, I have played around with making my own but I think I really hit a home run here. Are you ready for it?
This recipe is so simple and really takes no time to make. With only 7 ingredients how can you go wrong?
Coming home from work late with nothing prepared? Make this sauce! (pro tip-if you forgot to soak the cashews just add a little extra water. It should still come out creamy if you are using a high speed blender). It is satisfying, creamy and the ultimate comfort food. My favourite way to use this sauce is directly on freshly made gluten free pasta for a no fuss meal but feel free to try it over nachos or as a dip.
