Here it is folks, the BEST Vegan Cheese Sauce that I have been raving so much about. It’s creamy, silky, thick… & tastes so cheesy- it’s truly a crowd pleasing sauce. It’s better than the ones I used to buy at the store because it doesn’t have the strange artificial flavour to it. What I love about it the most is how multi-purpose it is! It goes well with everything- and I mean everything.

It starts off with 7 simple plant based ingredients with 5 spices.

And then all there is to it is cooking up a sweet potato, soaking some cashews and throwing it all into a blender. Now you have a sauce that you can use for snacks and meals!

This is a great sauce for mac and cheese or throwing some over regular tomato pasta (*it tastes fantastic cold, so it can be used in pasta salad too!). It’s also a great spread in sandwiches and wraps. Oh and the perfect condiment to dip fries, nachos, bread sticks and so much more!! I’ll be coming out with a couple recipes using this sauce so stay tuned 😉.

I really hope you make this Cheese Sauce & love it as much as I do because it is:

  • vegan friendly

  • dairy & gluten free

  • only 12 plant based simple ingredients 

  • multi-purpose

  • way healthier than store bought cheese sauce

  • super simple, easy & fast to make
