Cashew Cheddar Cheese

Author: Ashley


  • ½ cup raw cashews (soaked for two hours if not using a high-speed blender)
  • 1 cup filtered water
  • ¼ cup chopped roasted red peppers
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon arrowroot starch
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • ¾ to 1 teaspoon sea salt, to taste


  • Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender, and blend on high for two minutes, or until completely smooth.
  • Pour the mixture into a medium saucepan. Whisk constantly over medium heat for five minutes, or until the mixture thickens into a nacho cheese sauce consistency. Do not overheat (arrowroot loses its thickening power if overheated). 
  • Remove from the heat and serve.
