One of our most popular and most requested items on the menu is our paleo cheddar cheese sauce. It’s rich, it’s creamy, it’s dreamy and it’s dairy-free! You’re probably wondering how we achieve all of this glorious cheesiness without using any dairy products. While the recipe is a secret, I can spill a little bit about how we work our magic.
How Paleo Cheese is Made
The base of our sauce (and many non-dairy cheese substitutes) is nuts. We use cashews because we
feel like they give it the creamiest cheese-like texture. We blend them up until they’re super duper
smooth and add our own secret blend of herbs and spices. While it’s mainly the combination of our
ingredients that come together in cheesy harmony, one of the items that really gives it that cheddary
flavor is nutritional yeast. It’s a deactivated form of yeast that is typically sold in a dry powder or flake
form. It’s also a good source of B12 and is very popular in vegan cooking. While nutritional yeast is
quite a versatile ingredient, our favorite use for it is definitely in our cheese sauce base. From there we
can add additional flavors like jalapeno, or smoky bacon to really boost the flavor profile of our “cheesy”
dishes. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
