Chipotle Cashew Cheese
Recipe type: Condiment
Serves: 6-8
This vegan take on cheese sauce is delicious on just about everything. Cashews are high in magnesium and potassium, lending to your body's mineral balance.
  • 1½ cups cashews, soaked in water for 1 hour
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon smoke paprika (optional)
  • filtered water
  1. Drain the water from the cashews and place all the ingredients in a blender with just enough water to barely cover. Blende until very smooth. Add more water if the mixture is too thick or if you're having trouble blending the ingredients. This sauce should be fairly thick.
