I don’t know what it is, but I fecking love this stuff!
Whipped up in my high-power blender, it’s a tantalizing, body-loving blend of steamed veggies, turmeric, cashews and nutritional yeast.
Trader Joe’s organic Longboards chips are a perfect match for dipping, but I also love it atop of taco salad or a baked potato with steamed broccoli.
I can’t say it taste a whole lot like nacho cheese but in my opinion it definitely rivals it.
This recipe is an adaption from:
1/3 cup cup raw cashews- place in bottom of blender and pour just enough very hot water over it to cover.
Next steam together 1 cup (overflowing) each: diced cauliflower, carrots and white or red potatoes, until tender-crisp (5-10 min.). Save steaming liquid
Meanwhile, add to blender:
1/3 cup diced red bell pepper
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
1 Tbs. Fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp granulated onion
1/2 tsp granulated garlic (or a clove of garlic)
1/4 tsp turmeric (or a thumb of turmeric root)
Now add the steamed veggies and blend until smooth. If too thick, add a little of the steam water from the veggies until desired consistency.
Optional: Hot peppers for garnish, sprinkle with a little cumin or smoked paprika
Serve warm or cold with chips, or warm atop of favorite dish in place of cheese sauce.
