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
