Vegan Cheezy Sauce

My favorite!!! NO-dairy cheezy sauce---

Put over pasta or nachos! 
Use with broccoli for soup! 
Great as a dip or topping! 
Sometimes I just eat it by the spoonfull! Haha! Vegan food options are limitless!

I have noticed this tastes best when it is made the day before and the flavors 
have time to mix overnight.

You will need:
Water and large boiling pot
Minced Garlic
1/2 yellow Onion
2-3 large Carrots
4-5 small Yellow potatoes
1/2 Garnet yam
1/2 Butternut squash
1/3 Eggplant
1/2 Orange bell pepper
1 cup raw Cashews
Almond or soy milk
Nutritional yeast
Seasoned salt and pepper 
High speed Blender

Here is how the magic is done:
While bringing to boil-- about 2 quarts of water in a large pot, add these ingredients to the water:
 1 Tbsp Crushed Garlic
1/2 chopped Onion
2-3 chopped Large Carrots
4-5 diced small Yellow potatoes (peeled or not)
About 1 cup chopped/peeled Garnet yam
About 1 cup chopped/peeled Butternut squash
About 1 cup chopped/peeled Eggplant
1/2 chopped Orange bell pepper
2 tsp Seasoned salt
1 tsp ground Pepper
Don't add cashews until after it boils. 
(Unless you plan to eat the sauce right away, you should boil the cashews with the veggies or let them soak overnight beforehand.)
This just helps them blend up better.
Let those boil and soften for about 30 minutes. The softer the better!
Add and mix in 1 cup raw Cashews and 1/2 cup dairy-free milk. 

Let cool then refrigerate overnight.
 The next day, it is ready to be blended!
 Just put the ingredients in a large high speed blender along with approx 1/2 cup Nutritional yeast and salt to taste. 

This fills my whole Ninja blender up
 and lasts a few meals. 
It freezes great as well! 
Just thaw and reblend before next use. 

To give you an idea, I cooked an entire package of elbow macaroni and used half of the sauce on it for one meal.

I have tried many variations of this recipe, and have added more veggies than most recipes like this. It turns out great each time, but this recipe is my favorite. The eggplant and garnet yam are not essential, but add extra veggies to the dish.

Broccoli cheese soup!
