Vegan Nacho “Cheese” Sauce



1 C.  oats

1/4 C. nutritional yeast

2 Tbls. cornstarch

1 tsp.  onion powder

1 tsp. salt

6 oz. jar fire roasted red peppers in water*

1 Tbls. cider vinegar or lemon juice

2 tsp. bottled hot sauce (I used Cholula Chipotle)

1/8 tsp. liquid smoke

2 C. hot water


Combine ingredients in high speed blender (Vitamix,  Nutribullet) and blend for 5 minutes.  It will get hot and thicken.  Serve immediately.

Store leftover in airtight container in refrigerator.  Reheat in saucepan, adding a little water if necessary to get desired consistency.


*I blended a 12 oz. jar of roasted red peppers, then measured out half and saved the rest for another use.
