This raw vegan cheese sauce is a Winner with a capital W. It is surely a staple in our household and will be in yours too. My husband even swears it tastes just like the canned cheese with the nozzle, which he absolutely loved growing up. It’s a burst of junk food cheese flavor but of course without the junk or the diary. Yes, sometimes you really can have the best of both worlds, like enjoying exceptional cheese sauce while keeping it healthy. 

Let’s whip up this tasty cheese sauce! First things first, soak the cashews for 2-4 hours. Rinse well and drain.

Now all you have to do is blend the ingredients up in the blender. Add all the ingredients except for the water into the blender, and blend until smooth. If you have a high speed blender like a Vitamix or Blendtec, you should be able to blend it into a smooth cheese sauce without adding any water. If it feels like it does need some help, add only 1 tablespoon of water at a time to keep the amount you are putting in, the minimum amount it needs to make it into a smooth sauce. If you are using a regular blender, it might require a little bit more water than the recipe calls for, but be sure to keep it to only the minimum amount it needs to blend it into a creamy smooth sauce and no more.
