You guys know that when it comes to plant-based foods, I only share the recipes that I believe both meat-eaters and non-meat and dairy eater would love. This vegan nacho cheese sauce taste so good, that when I serve it, no one ever ask if it’s dairy free or not. I recently made my sheet pan nachos for my Dad and he devoured them. Mind. you, he swears that plant based foods are just not his thing. Well, now we know that they are lol.

How to make homemade Vegan Nacho Cheese Sauce
If you have a blender that has a “soup” function on it, then all you want to do is add all ingredients to the blender and let the blender do it’s job. If you don’t have a blender with the “soup” function, then you can just blend all of the ingredients and then eat either on top of the stove or in the microwave.
