Dairy Free Cheese Sauce
I found a similar recipe to this a really long time ago. I’ve played around with it to make it perfect for my taste buds. There are lots of different versions of this sauce now but I love this one. It can be made as thick and creamy as you want (add less water, more cashews/vegan butter etc). It is perfect for so many dishes. This recipe makes ‘a lot’ of sauce! I used this batch to make a big lasagne, vegetable bake and nachos!! I haven’t yet tried freezing it but will report back when I do as it would be great to have a supply of this handy for a quick dinner that the whole family will enjoy.
