Easy Vegan Nacho Cheese

Vegan nacho cheese. Can it be done? Yes, it really can! This recipe will have you telling others that it’s “not yo cheese!”


Ingredients

  • 2 cups potatoes, diced large
  • 1 cup carrots, diced large
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup nutritional yeast flakes (but to be completely honest I always double the serving of nutrional yeast in all my recipes)

Optional Additions

  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp paprika/smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp vegan chicken-style seasoning

Instructions

  • Boil the potatoes and carrots in water until soft
  • Blend potatoes, carrots, water, oil, and seasonings on high in a blender until the ‘cheese’ is smooth
  • I enjoy eating it with only tortilla chips, but it can be used in Mexican dishes, on pasta, or as a topping!
