"Cheese" Sauce - Great For Nachos

While we are on a nacho stream, here is a great recipe for cheese sauce. You can also use this as a delicious veggie dip, cheesy topping for a veggie burger, or over spiralized zucchini noodles for some yummy "Mac and Cheese."If you don't want it spicy, cut down or eliminate the chili and cayenne powders.

For more variety, pour Cheese Sauce over a salad and sprinkle with Taco Meat.  I'm getting hungry just writing about this!

Nacho Cheese Sauce 
1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked for 1 hour and drained
1 cup hemp seeds
2 tsp sesame seeds (soaked several hours)
1/2 cup water
1 Tbsp lemon  juice
2 tsp nama shoyu (or tamari)
1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped (about 1 1/4 cups)
1 Tbsp nutritional yeast (optional - not raw but adds a cheesy flavor)
1/4 tsp Himalayan sea salt
1/8 tsp tumeric powder
1/8 tsp cumin powder
3/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 tsp red chili powder (or cayenne to taste)

1. In processor or high speed blender combine ingredients, and blend until smooth. Scrape sides of bowl with spatula and continue to process. Taste for spiciness, and season as needed.

2. Store in refrigerator up to 3 or 4 days. Add water to thin sauce or warm in dehydrator.
