I know, I know. I’m obsessed with cashew-based sauces lately. But I pinky promise they’re super tasty as well as being good for you. #winner

I love creating dishes that secretly pack extra nutrients in my body without added animal products such as cheese, dairy, or meats. Not to say I don’t love those every once in awhile but there’s nothing better than feeling refreshed and powered by REAL food.

The cool thing about this cashew-based cheese sauce is that you can really make it however thick or thin you want just by adding or reducing the amount of water you use. I made this a little thicker so I could literally spread it over my nachos.

You’ll also want to opt for using a super high-powered blender or food processor. I have a Ninja, which I love, but anything really works. Just make sure to blend it up enough to remove any chunks of cashews.
