Cheese sauce, but make it healthy.  This vegan cheese sauce is here to bring a creamy & dreamy dip to your table with NO nuts, NO oil, and NO dairy!  This cheese sauce is like the vegan nacho cheese that you’d get at the movie theater, ballpark concession stand, or roller rink (for whatever reason, I have memories of digging into cheese nachos with my blades on).  The secret to this sauce is all in the spices – the cheese sauce is flavorful, creamy, and  has a little kick to it from the chili flakes. Dip into some serious cheesy nostalgia with this fun and retro sauce.

This Plant Based Cheese Sauce Recipe Is:

  • Bright
  • Creamy
  • Nutritious
  • Loaded with Flavor
  • Bold
  • Made without Nuts, Dairy, or Oil
  • Vegan, Gluten Free, and SO Yummy!

This vegan cheese sauce made with no nuts is the perfect recipe for healthy homemade meal prep – add it to your lunches and dinners for the week.  I am a huge fan of meal prepping, batch cooking, and making recipes ahead.  I love the convenience of cooking once and being able to enjoy healthy homemade meals during the week when I don’t have time. There’s a whole section of TheHerbeevore.com dedicated to my favorite tried & true meal prep recipes.  With just a little planning and prep, you can have a week’s worth of recipes ready in the time it would take to make one portion.  Just batch cook, divide into individual containers, and place in the fridge or freezer for later!  I also made a list of my favorite meal prep products on Amazon that I use weekly.

The Best Blender for the Job

I’ve owned a lot of blenders, but my Vitamix is definitely the best one I’ve owned. This high-speed blender will blend even the toughest of ingredients into pulp.  I prefer using my blender to my food processor for sauces like this or homemade hummus, as it’s much easier to clean the Vitamix. This is definitely one kitchen appliance we use on a daily basis!

How Do I Make Vegan Cheese Sauce?

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Cover a sheet pan with parchment paper, and add the carrots, potato, onion, lemon juice, and salt. Toss and roast for 30 minutes, flipping halfway.
  2. When vegetables are finished roasting, add to a blender with the reminder of the ingredients.
  3. Blend on high for 2 minutes until sauce is thick and creamy. If sauce is too thick, add an additional 1/4 cup of plant milk at a time until the sauce reaches desired consistency.
