Adapted from Rejuvenate Your Life by Serene Allison. I find this sauce is creamiest when I use soaked cashews. It can be used for pizza, on top of warmed broccoli, in lasagna, etc.  

Recipe Directions

1. Blend all ingredients until creamy.

2. Add more water if it is too thick.

This is absolutely fantastic. I was really missing cheese and I think this will help me with my transition.

I ate this sauce on some warmed broccoli last night and today for lunch I had it on zuchini pasta with lost of pepper! Awsome. I'm making some raw bread tonight I'll have to try it on that. Thanks!!

I made this with a tomato and almond butter instead of a red pepper and tahini and my subs ended up making it gross. Tonight I'm doing it right and following the recipe! Can't wait!

I just made this and it is awesome! I had to add jalapenos to mine-I like hot stuff! I left out the nutritional yeast too. I'm going to use this as a spread for my roll- ups. Thank you so much for posting this recipe!!

I made an account just so I could say how much I love this stuff. I dragged my non-raw, though health-conscious mom in to try it, and she said "Now, I have to doubt that this really tastes like cheddar..." When she had a taste, she looked at me and said "Oh my gosh. It's real!" I had to laugh. Anyway, I am in love with this stuff!

This recipe is great! Even my non-raw son loved it and asked for more...he actually said he could get hooked on this stuff.

What a wonderful cheesy sauce! I like that there isn't oil added to the recipe. I didn't have quite enough bell pepper, so that may have made the salt seem more prominent. I probably was able to produce 1/3 of a large bell pepper, using red and yellow pepper leftover pieces I had chopped from a previous meal. I did find my result to be a bit salty. Then I added half a serrano pepper, a dash of cayenne and an entire scallion bunch to make it a spicy nacho cheese.

I've been vegan for a few years now and must say that, out of all the raw and cooked "cheddar" sauces that I've tried, this one is my favorite.

Included an extra garlic clove, substituted two jalapenos for the red pepper, added a generous dash of cayenne, and tossed the lot with a bowl of broccoli. Am midway through said bowl as we speak and suspect that I will be very, very sad when it's gone.

Used this as a pasta sauce with a little extra water. Very good...will definitely try again. I suggest a dash of cayenne and black pepper.

I tried this tonight and put it on raw burgers (sunflower) and "mashed potatoes" (cauliflower) and it was sooo good. Thanks for sharing this.

This is SOOOOOO good. It really does taste like cheese. I cut zucchini into little macaroni shapes and I am enjoying some mac and cheese right now.

i am really surprised at how much this tasted like dairy cheese. i used half cashews and half sunflower seeds and soaked both, and it turned out incredible. i really appreciate this recipe; it will help a lot with cheese cravings.

I used soaked cashews, tossed it over diced yellow squash and subbed 2 small hot peppers instead of bell pepper. Topped it off with some mashed avocado to add some coolness.....delish!!!
