I'm not vegan or vegetarian. If I had to choose a title I'd label myself a foodie. I also like experimenting, and I don't like oil-based nacho cheese. So when I saw a vegan recipe for a healthy looking nacho cheese that I had all the ingredients I had to try it!
First off the main ingredients are potatoes and carrots. The most unusual ingredient is nutritional yeast. I replaced the lemon juice with lime juice, as the important part was having an acid in there, it shouldn't affect the taste. You could probably use apple cider vinegar as well. The biggest change from the recipe is that I don't have a traditional blender. I have a ninja master prep instead. It takes up less table space, but also doesn't make mixture as smooth as a blender would.
1) The texture was perfect. I started as a texture eater and have slowly moved away from it as I grew, I still eat certain things for their texture and this fits that niech for me perfectly.
2) Taste wise It's not quite cheese. It was as deliriously salty as cheese, which is honestly what I look for in my nacho cheese anyways. I mean there isn't much other nutrition one can get out of it. But if you're looking for a melted cheddar this is not that.
3) It's super filling. I only made half the recipe and then ate a 1/4th and that filled me for the whole night.
In all I intend to make this again and hope you'll consider trying it too! If you'd like to try the recipe for yourself here's the link!
