Often vegan or raw recipes contain lots of oil, nuts or both, but not this cheese sauce! You could say the ingredients are a bit surprising in this recipe. I would lie, if I told you this tastes exactly like cheese, but it’s pretty darn tasty nevertheless. This cheese sauce contains no dairy, no oil, no nuts, no gluten, no sugar. Say what!? What does it contain then, right! Cheesy flavor comes from nutritional yeast (my all time favorite add on, I sprinkle that to everything). I used to be the biggest cheese addict before my vegan days, and nutritional yeast has the closest flavor to cheese.
I used this cheese sauce as a dip for my chippies last night, so I left the mixture thick. If you use it as a cheese sauce, add more water.
