  • 1 Blender


  • 1 1/2 cups potatoes, chopped
  • 1 medium carrot, chopped
  • 1/4 cup raw cashews, optional
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • pinch cayenne
  • 1 tsp white miso
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 -3/4 cup cooking liquid or more


  • Peel and cut the potatoes and carrots, add to pot with cashews if using. If you are keeping this fat free, omit the cashews.
  • Once the potatoes and carrots are tender, add to the blender with all the spices and start with 1/4 cup of cooking liquid and start to blend. Slow add cooking liquid until the mixture blend but remains thick. Continue to blend for about 2 minutes until smooth.
  • Depending on what you are using your cheese sauce for you may need to add more liquid. I like it thick for topping bake potatoes and vegetables and I thin it out to make scalloped potatoes.
  • Adjust the seasoning to your liking. Also great to add, red peppers, salsa, or change the spices
