It really is simple.
It really is cheesy.
My family loves it and we are cheesers! Well, we would be if we weren't dairy free....except today when I let Bup enjoy a secret frozen yogurt at IKEA while W was happily unaware, playing in Smalland. Ooops...there's my torrid secret...sometimes I give Bup dairy when no one else is around.
So, on to the Cheese!
I have made this recipe a multitude of times and used it for many things, such as topping veggies, pizza, snails (rice macaroni...my boys call them snails...), etc. Feel free to give it a try if you're looking for a dairy alternative to cheese. Be aware, if you have a nut allergy then this is NOT for you. Stay away anti-nutters!
Simple Cheese Sauce
1 cup raw cashews
2 cups water
1/2 red bell pepper ( I use bottled ones)
2 TB sp nutritional yeast
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Blend all ingredients together in the blender. Transfer to a sauce pan and cook on medium heat, stirring constantly, until boiling and thickened. Serve as desired.
