Super cheesy vegan cashew cheese sauce. This smooth and creamy sauce is wonderfully satisfying and simply delicious drizzled over almost anything!


  • 1 cup (150g) Cashew Nuts (Raw)
  • 2 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
  • 1 Clove Garlic (crushed)
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice (freshly squeezed)
  • Pinch Sea Salt
  • Pinch Black Pepper
  • 5 Tbsp Water


  1. Add the cashew nuts, nutritional yeast, crushed garlic and lemon juice to the blender jug. Add sea salt and black pepper. Measure out the water and add it in. Blend until very smooth and creamy.
  2. For a thicker cheese, use less water. For a thinner salad dressing consistency, use a little more water.
  3. Serve drizzled over baked potatoes, vegetables, pizzas or pastas.
