Vegan Nachos Recipe (Low Fat Vegan Nacho Cheese)

Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Recipe

I loved me some nachos in my pre-vegan days. I sometimes went to the movies just to eat the nachos! Tostidos con Queso was my favorite (albetit very unhealthy) cheese of choice. Once I went vegan I knew I'd have to recreate a vegan version and I have! This cheese is cashew-based (so not fat-free) but the nuts are necessary to get the right creamy, rich consistency... it's okay to splurge once in a while.

The best vegan nacho cheese on the planet, I swear. Try the nut-free (fat-free) sister version on p. 245 of The Happy Herbivore Cookbook.



Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth and creamy. Transfer to a saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring occassionally and allowing the cheese to thicken.
