By Fredrica Syren:

This is a sauce I like to make up a lot of and keep in fridge because it’s so versatile and be used not only for mac and cheese but also drizzled over nachos or as a dipping sauce for roasted potatoes and vegetables. The possibilities are endless. I also like that this sauce only contain good ingredients: carrots, nuts nutritional yeast.








  • 2 medium carrots
  • a handful of raw cashews
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • Salt to taste
  • ½ cup Almond milk
  • A dash Smoked paprika (optional but gives a smoky taste to the sauce)
  • 1 tsp minced pickled jalapenos (optional but perfect if you want a spicy nacho cheese)

Peel and cook carrots until soft. Drain and place carrots and all rest ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend until complete smooth. Toss with cooked pasta and let it get warm. Sauce will last a week at in a jar with lid in fridge.
