Vegan Cheese Sauce Recipe

I know there are tons of vegan cheese sauce recipes out there, but most of them contain cashews + many more ingredients and require longer preparation time. This cashew-free cheese sauce contains only a handful of ingredients and is ready in 3 minutes.

This recipe is not only amazing for vegans. I served it also to vegetarians and meat eaters and everyone loved the taste AND texture of this vegan cheese sauce. The tapioca flour (which is also called tapioca starch) makes this recipe so special because it adds the amazing elasticity to the sauce. It makes the sauce stretchy and even reminds of real cheese. Nutritional yeast is an important ingredient for the taste because it adds a cheesy flavor. The spices are up to you, but I love to add some garlic and onion powder, and also a pinch of smoked paprika.

You can use this vegan sauce for any savory recipe which requires cheese. Whether it is pizza, nachos, gratin, pasta, or any other plant-based recipe. Sometimes when I am too lazy to make my Mac and Cheese recipe I will simply make this 3-minute cheese sauce and pour it over my cooked pasta and my dinner is served in just a few minutes. I have included some pictures of different dishes which I made using this cheese sauce recipe.

I have made this awesome vegan cheese sauce quite a few times now. We like to make vegan "cheese steak" sandwiches. We make the "meat" using soy curls and a bunch of umami flavorings in a pan with grilled onions. Then we load the "meat" onto a 6" Hero roll and apply a generous amount of this cheese sauce. It is fantastic. An interesting note is that today, I added the juice of an entire lemon to the sauce, about double what the recipe recommends, and the extra tang was beneficial. The taste was a little brighter.

I have tried many plant based sauce recipes, most were bland, some downright disgusting. THIS is PERFECT! I've had it on salad, baked potatoes, as a dip for tortilla chips and vegetables and last night I used it in place of yoghurt with my curry. There's a teeny bit left. There are some leftover mashed potatoes and cooked Kale in the fridge. Think I'll mix them up and air fry them and maybe put some tobasco in your sauce. Mmmm - can't wait (and I've only just had breakfast)! Thankyou.

Thank you so much for the great recipe! The sauce was surprisingly cheesy. My pescatarian husband was very pleased with the sauce. He was very surprised by how good it was. He even went back for seconds.

I LOVE this sauce!!! ???So yummy, easy and low fat! I added some cayenne to mine for a kick, and I added more salt and lemon juice since our sauce was for plain pasta and broccoli. My husband is newly vegan, and it was a huge hit with him too. ??

This Easy Vegan Cheese Sauce comes with two variations for an allergy-friendly twist on a classic comfort food recipe that has all the traditional flavors you love with whole food ingredients full of healthy fats, vitamins, nutrients, and fiber. Use it to create mac & cheese, add it to casseroles, drizzle it over nachos, and more!

One is perfect to use in instances when you need a thicker sauce such as with dips or pasta. The second is more of a slurry, perfect to add to soups. The best part? Both recipes are super simple and made with wholesome ingredients that will leave you full and satisfied without feeling sluggish.

To make this roux-inspired vegan cheese sauce, start by melting butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Once melted, whisk in the flour, salt, pepper, and garlic powder making sure to stir for 2-3 minutes on medium-low heat or until the color of the sauce gets slightly nuttier.

Begin by whisking the coconut or almond milk with the broth, nutritional yeast flakes, garlic, and arrowroot powder. Bring the mixture to a soft boil the reduce the heat to low. Then, stir continuously until a thickened cheese-like sauce is formed. Your sauce should be pretty thick after 5-8 minutes!

We made this tonight. Delicious! First time ever for vegan mac & cheese. Do you by any chance know the nutritional value for this recipe? Would love to know if any cholesterol, saturated fat & fiber content as my husband went off statins, and we watch what we eat.Thanks so much!

What could I use to substitute for the nutritional yeast? Any substitutes would be awesome as I would love to make this for my family! Could you use any vegan cheese in place of the nutritional yeast and would there be any different methods in the preparation of it? Thank you so much for your lovely recipes! Love them all!

For the best flavour I'd recommend sticking with the nutritional yeast. Most vegan cheeses don't have much flavour. Nutritional yeast gives this recipe a delicious savoury, seasoned flavour and there really isn't anything else that gives a similar effect. Hope that helps!

Smoked paprika has a totally different flavour to regular paprika and really adds something to this cashew cheese sauce. I have never tried it with regular paprika. I think it would be ok though or you could just omit it completely. I've made it without when I've run out.

Learn how to make a creamy vegan cashew cheese sauce with a few simple ingredients! This easy vegan cheese sauce recipe tastes just like nacho cheese and is delicious on enchiladas, tacos, noodles & pasta, as a dip, over taco bowls and so much more.

I had to find out for myself, so I set out on a quest to make the BEST vegan cheese sauce out there. I wanted it to be full of umami flavors, taste like something close to nacho cheese, be completely smooth and creamy with a little hint of spice.

*To make the cashew cheese sauce: soak the cashews in 4 cups of water for at least 2 hours; otherwise I've found that you can easily speed up the process by adding the raw cashews to a pot with water and placing over high heat. Bring water to a boil, then immediately turn off the heat; let the cashews sit for 30-45 minutes in the warm water, then drain.

I am not vegan but love eating healthy. This is excellent! I make my own almond milk so I used that. I left out the jalapeños so I could use it in various recipes. When I used it for nacho cheese I cut up some fresh jalapeño and mixed it in. It was awesome! Kudos to ambitious kitchen for a delicious recipe !

This is the easiest cheese sauce ever and you can use this basic recipe when you want a more creamy texture by adding a potato. This is my number one cheese sauce recipe that I come to often to make over and over again

I was looking for a quick cashew based cheese sauce tonight and this was an awesome find. I had baked potato with steamed broccoli and used this cheese sauce as a topping with scallions. Absolutely perfect combination. The sauce was quick and simple with my Vitamix. I soaked my raw cashews in boiling water for about 20 minutes

The cashew cheese sauce was delicious and I love playing around with recipes so mr loving pimento cheese I roasted a sweet red pepper and added it to the cashew cheese and wow!!! It was delicious!!

It's pure magic how you can take vegetables and create this incredibly creamy healthy cheese sauce, without even using milk! I know you probably doubt me, but I promise you need this. I have used this strategy to make my vegan white cheese sauce and my vegan nacho cheese sauce with success!

You will notice this vegan cheese sauce has no nutritional yeast. I am not a nutritional yeast fan, and I don't really think it tastes cheesy, but if you like it feel free to add some in!

I tried a variety of combinations for this dairy free cheese sauce, I did after all spend years of trial and error, and the ingredients listed are the best for creating the correct flavor and texture. Here a few swaps you can experiment with:

You can adapt this recipe to make different flavors of vegan cheese sauces. Any time you mix in an addition, start with a little and blend in more a little at a time until you get the flavor you want.

Hi Kevin! As I have mentioned a few times, the nuts really are the key to a true creamy cheesy result. That being said I have had people make it without and enjoy it. If you look through the comments you can find a few ideas. My suggestion is to replace with a combo of things. I do use white beans in a few of my sauce recipes (however they also have cashews) so they are a good sub but I would be careful of using too many as it can become more hummus like. If you want to keep this very low fat, and not use any nuts or seeds, then maybe try the white beans, or a combo of that, a touch more potato and some cauliflower. You may have to adjust the other flavorings to get the end result you're looking for. Some people have also used sunflower seeds! Let me know what you do and how it turns out!

To any looking for GREAT cheese sauce - this is the one. Look no further. ? I know it's slightly ridiculous to care about cheese to this extent, but it was one of my New Year's Resolutions to try cheeses until I found one for my family. Sophia - you helped me reach my goal by January 5th! I have the rest of the year to try your other recipes. ?

The ONLY vegan cheese sauce I like, when I found it over over a year ago I had all but given up hope for a healthy cheese sauce alternative. It is SO good. I usually make it exactly by the recipe but today I used it as the base for Broccoli "Cheese" soup (by thinning it out quite a bit) with caramelized shallots and YUM! What a wonderfully versatile recipe. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful recipes, I really appreciate it.

I recently discovered I don't do well with nutritional yeast. And I thought I'd never have vegan cheese sauce again. Cheesy sauce without no
