Easy Vegan Smoky Cheddar "Cheese" Sauce

I LOVE this easy sauce so much! Put it on sweet potatoes, make it as a base for potato salad, put it on sandwiches and more! It's the perfect meal topper for all your summer barbecues!

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 Cup Cashews
  • 1 Teaspoon Liquid Smoke (I found mine in the grocery store by the BBQ sauces)
  • 1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons Nutritional Yeast
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Almond Milk

Directions:

Place all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy!

Notes:

  • This recipe makes about 8 oz.
  • If you don't have a high speed blender (like a Vitamix or a Magic Bullet, my favorites!), then soak the cashews in the almond milk for about 30 minutes before mixing in a regular blender.
  • You could also make this in a food processor, but may need to blend a little longer to make it smooth.
