🔵Recipe Vegan Cheese:

1 C white potatoes, peeled and cubed
1/2 C carrots, peeled and cubed
1/4 C vegetable oil
1/4 C nondairy milk
2 tsp lemon juice
6 pickled jalapeño slices
3 tbsp jalapeño pickle brine
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 1/2 tsp arrowroot flour
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp sea salt
Boil the potatoes and carrots in pot of water for approximately 10 minutes. Drain them from the boiling water and add to a high-powered blender immediately. If you cook the potatoes for too long, they will become starchy and your sauce will not be smooth. This recipe will not work in a conventional blender. The potatoes need to be whipped at a high enough speed that they break down and emulsify, creating a smooth and creamy cheese-like sauce, with undetectable potato! You’ll need a Vitamix or Blendtec. I’ve made it in a Magic Bullet in a half batch and it also worked well.
Add the remaining ingredients to the blender and combine until smooth. Your sauce may be hot enough to serve immediately, if you’re in a rush, or heat it up in a small pot to thicken it slightly before pouring over whatever food you want to make cheesier! How about chips, chili, broccoli, or cauliflower for starters.
