This dairy free gem is cashew based and very much like our Mac and Trees recipe. Simply modify the liquid and spices and ta-da!
1 cup raw cashews soaked
1 cup water (less of you want it a little thicker)
1 whole pimento
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp chili powder
- soak the cashews (the better your blender the less time you need to soak) at least 10-15 minutes although the Hubby has skipped this step many a time
- drain the cashews then place all the ingredients in the blender (I’m using a Vitamix) and blend until smooth
- if you want to add some heat (I’m a wimp) feel free to add you favorite peppers
You can add a can of rotel, add sautéed Gimme Lean “sausage”, diced peppers or pour it over ships as it. My family is addicted to this “cheese” sauce, I hope yours will be too.
