Vegan Nacho Cheese

This addictively delicious vegan nacho cheese dip is great served over your nachos, with tortilla chips or veggie sticks. Oh and bonus—it’s also super nutritious and super simple to make! Don’t you just love feeding your family healthy stuff they flip for?!? All you need is these few ingredients and you’re on your way to the best vegan nacho cheese, that you’ve ever tasted!


1 cup raw cashew pieces*
8 oz. jar pimientos or roasted red peppers, drained
½ cup nutritional yeast
6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
6 medium-large cloves garlic, peeled
¼ cup water
2 teaspoons granulated onion
1 ½ teaspoons sea salt




1. Blend all of the ingredients in a blender until velvety smooth.

2. Pour your vegan cheese dip over your nachos, or simply use as a dip for your tortilla chips or veggie sticks and enjoy!


(*NOTE: If you aren’t using a high-speed blender, you’ll need to soak the cashews for a few hours first in the water and lemon juice so that your end product is smooth.) This vegan nacho cheese will store, refrigerated in an airtight container, for at least a week.


Makes about 2 cups (6 servings)
