Non Dairy Nacho Cheese Sauce

This Cheese Sauce is Awesome!!! You can use it for so many things. I use it on pasta for a yummy "Mac and Cheese" alternative, or as a vegetable dip, salad dressing, or nacho cheese alternative. It's fun to mix up the flavor a little bit with the optional ingredients so it doesn't taste the same every time.

Fabulous Nacho Cheese Sauce (Vegan and Raw)

1 large red bell pepper
1/4 cup water
1 cup raw cashews (soaked over night and rinsed well)
1 Tablespoon Tahini
3 Tablespoons Nutritional Yeast
1 T Raw Onion
1 Clove Garlic
2 Tablespoons Fresh Lemon Juice
1 1/2 Teaspoons salt (I use much less salt)

Put all ingredients in the blender and blend until creamy.

Optional Ingredients:

For a little flavor variety, try adding green onion, jalapeno pepper, cilantro, green chilis, red pepper flakes, etc.
