Nacho Cheese Sauce (vegan)

Based on The Un-Cheese Cookbook's "Gee Whiz Spread"

Serve with tortilla chips as a dip or as a sauce for taco salad or over anything Mexican!  My 16 month old likes it stirred into quinoa or rice.


1 can White Beans, drained and rinsed (Northern Beans)
2-3 TBSP Tahini
6 TBSP Nutritional Yeast
3 TBSP Lemon Juice
2 Cloves Garlic
Small piece of red onion (1/4 of whole onion)
1/2 tsp. Dijon Mustard
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. Turmeric *optional to make sauce more yellow (I did not for this recipe)

Fresh chunky salsa *add in after blending

Combine all EXCEPT salsa in blender (I use Vita-Mix) and process until smooth, adding water as necessary to thin down

Stir in salsa

Heat covered in container in microwave and then it's ready to serve!
