Cheese Sauce (no nuts)

  • 2 BIG potatoes
  • 2 Medium Carrots (make sure they are good quality - flavor matters)
  • 1/4 c. Nutritional Yeast flakes
  • 1/4 onion (raw)
  • 3 Tbls. Oil (grape seed oil is good for you and doesn't change the flavor like olive oil can)
  • 1-2 tsp. Lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. salt

Peel the potatoes and cook them along with the carrots in water on the stove.  Cook until well done.  Use 1/2 - 3/4 cup of the hot water from the cooking and place in blender, add cooked potatoes & carrots and blend until smooth.  Add other ingredients one at a time and blend well.  Add the lemon juice & salt to taste. 

This sauces is great served as a nacho cheese dip. Serve in a slow cooker on "warm."

Variations: add garlic, jalapeños, green chili peppers, etc.  This would be super over a nut loaf, or as a soup with broccoli.
