Instructions
  1. Place all of the ingredients into your Instant Pot and lock the lid into place, making sure the nozzle is in the sealing position.
  2. Use the Manual setting and set the timer for 5 minutes. Use the quick release method when the timer is up.
  3. When all of the pressure is out of the pot, take off the lid and cool for 15 minutes.
  4. Transfer the mixture to your blender and blend until super creamy and smooth, about two full minutes.
  5. Serve on pasta, vegetables or as a dip!

    This is a vegan/ plant based recipe. there is no cheese. it is an alternative cheese sauce for those who choose not to eat dairy

    This is an excellent alternative to a cheese
    dip. Made a couple of times for our vegan friends. We make fancy nachos! It tastes yummy cold as well.

    We have made this recipe multiple times and really enjoy it! Sometimes we will add 1/2 cup of chunky salsa to it to make it like nacho cheese for tex-mex dishes.
