Nacho Cheese Sauce is the New Craze! Of Course I Have A Recipe.

 I've used this cheese sauce on Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts and Enchiladas.  Delicious.  I want to make some RIGHT NOW! 

 You will need:
     *1 cup of soaked cashews. **
     *1/2 Tbs olive oil
     *1/2 cup water
     *Juice of half a lemon
     *1 clove of garlic
     *2 bell peppers
     *1 1/2 tsp salt
Blend together, until completely smooth.  I add a little bit of Red Chile Pepper for some kick.

You can leave it as a raw sauce, or bake it onto something, or even just heat it up on the stovetop and pour it over some chips.  Add jalapenos if you are so inclined.  My next venture is to leave out the spice and make mac n cheese with it. 

**Soak 2/3 of a cup of raw, unsalted cashews for at least 6 hours.  Best if overnight.  6 hours, covered at room temperature, anything longer than that- put in a container with a lid in the fridge.  If you are short on time, you can boil the cashews.  Some of these dishes get baked anyway so the rawness doesn't matter so much.  Boil on medium high for about 15 - 20 mins, until cashews are soft.
