Vegan Nacho Cheese {Gluten Free}

I’m no gonna lie ya’ll, giving up cheese has been hard! I’m also not gonna lie in saying I’ve definitely had some cheat meals on this vegan adventure, of which I think all involved cheese, but for the most part I’ve been pretty strict with myself. For me, vegan cooking has involved A LOT of curry recipes, and while I love curry it gets a little redundant after a while so new meals are a nice reprieve. While searching for a curry alternative I ran across this recipe and to say I was skeptical was an understatement, how are we turning potatoes and carrots into nacho cheese people? Well, it’s a thing. And I dig it.

I was also initially thinking this recipe was going to take too long or have too many weird ingredients to be worth it, but on top of being ridiculously easy and fast, it is also ridiculously deliciously cheesy, and the texture is great! So it’s time to celebrate my vegan friends, the solution to your cheesy sorrows is here!

Vegan Nacho Cheese {Gluten Free}

Vegans rejoice! This ridiculously easy, smooth, delicious nacho cheese dip is here to save the day!

  • Yield: 1 1/2 cups

Ingredients

  • 1 cup peeled and cubed white potato
  • 1/2 cup peeled and cubed carrot
  • 1/4 cup sunflower oil
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy milk or water
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 6 pickled jalapeño slices
  • 3 Tablespoons jalapeño pickling liquid
  • 1 Tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon arrowroot flour/starch
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 Tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  1. In a medium pan over high heat boil the peeled and diced potatoes and carrots for approximately 10 minutes until just soft (if you cook the potatoes for too long they will become starchy and your sauce will not be smooth). Drain and add veggies to a high-speed blender immediately.
  2. Add remaining ingredients to the blender and combine until smooth. Serve immediatlely or heat slightly in a small pot to thicken slightly before serving or using in your favorite cheesy recipe!
