Vegan Nacho Cheese

This homemade vegan nacho cheese recipe is gooey, spreadable and can go on so much more than just nachos. It’s so versatile I whip up a batch every week to put on sandwiches, roll into wraps and add to dips.

It’s the simplest recipe to follow and only takes 9 ingredients to make – 7 of which you probably already have on hand.

Put-On-Anything Vegan Cheese Sauce

Making the perfect vegan cheese sauce only takes 4 steps! So there’s no excuses for not trying this recipe for yourself.

Other vegan cheese sauce recipes use nuts or sweet potato for the base. In this recipe we’ll be using butternut squash, as it gives a rich deep flavor that can carry, but does not overwhelm the other ingredients.

Butternut squash is also a great option because it contains less fat than nuts and less carbs than sweet potatoes. Which only really means one thing: you’re allowed to eat more! Because believe me, this vegan nacho cheese sauce is highly addictive – you’ll want it on everything you eat.

Few things are better than creamy vegan nacho cheese sauce.

To make this creamy vegan cheese sauce simply peel, cube and sauté the butternut squash until soft. Then add to a blender with all the other ingredients, mixing until smooth. It’s that effortless.

For an easy queso cheese sauce, mix equal parts salsa for a spicy twist.
