Cashew "Cheese" Sauce

This recipe is Whole30, Paleo, Gluten, and Dairy Free.

You won't believe your tastebuds when you try this Cashew "Cheese" Sauce that is completely dairy free yet tastes so cheesy and decadent! You can use it as a Queso dip by adding chilis to it or on its own wherever you would use cheese in a recipe. Like soups, sauces, stews, eggs, potatoes and more! I made a broccoli cheddar soup and everyone at the table could not believe there was no cheese in it! You have to try it to believe it!


1 cup raw cashews
1 clove garlic, peeled & cut in half
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
