Nacho cheese sauces have always been dairy based but there are some reasonable vegan versions that bring their own inimitable style. This version is a superb dipping sauce for nacho crisps and crudities such as carrot batons.

This nacho cheese sauce could be a more sophisticated replacement for the more simple vegan cheese sauces that have a basic formulation. It is perfectly possible to take this vegan nacho cheese version too and use as a substitute cheese sauce for pizzas, lasagnes and covering vegetables. The nutritional yeast flakes are essential for creating the cheese base flavour.

  1. I thought this was not bad. I prefer some of the other nacho recipes. They use more yeast and slightly less onion powder. I thought the cheesiness was good. I will send u a picture of my efforts.
