Nacho Cheese Sauce

Nacho Cheese Sauce

This is a recipe I use frequently. It is easy and makes a great topping (either hot or cold) for nachos, haystacks, and cooked vegetables. It's also delicious on homemade pizza or mixed with pasta for a cheesy pasta dish like mac and cheese. If you don't like cashews, Brazil nuts work just as well in this recipe.

1/3 cup cashews, washed
1 1/2 cups cold water
4 Tbsp. pimentos
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
2 Tbsp. nutritional yeast flakes
1 - 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. salt

Blend all ingredients in a blender until the cashews are completely broken-down and mixture is smooth and creamy. Then place mixture into a saucepan and cook over medium high heat, stirring constantly. After mixture starts to bubble, simmer for 3 minutes more. Remove from heat and pour into jar or bowl to serve.
