Dragonfly's Bulk, Dry Uncheese Mix

What you need: 

3 cups raw, organic cashew pieces
2 cups nutritional yeast (I like Red Star or Vegetarian Support)
3 tablespoons seasoning salt
3 tablespoons garlic powder (not garlic salt)
3 tablespoons onion powder (not onion salt)
8 tablespoons arrowroot powder (can use cornstarch, but it is not stringy like arrowroot)

What you do: 

1. Using a very dry blender, blend the nuts until they are very fine.
2. Add all ingredients, and blend in batches of about 1 cup.
3. Mix in a dry container.
4. To make sauce, add heaping 1/2 cup mix to 1 cup water, and stir over heat until thickened.
Use less water and add salsa for queso dip. Pour over hot veggies and/or pasta. Spread on vegan bread and toast for grilled uncheeses, or look up my enchilada recipe and use it that way.
You can keep this tightly covered in the fridge for about 6 weeks.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I haven't made this yet but can yeast you buy at the store be used? I didn't realise nutrional yeast was different than baker yeast. Can I still use it in this recipe and it will work???  Hurry before my 5 yr eats all the cashews

Am I the only person on this site who doesn't love this stuff?

I threw half a batch together the other day and just made some of it tonight to put over some veggies and was not terribly impressed.  It was good but I wouldn't give it the rave.  I like the enchilada cheesy sauce a LOT better and it's way less fattening.  Maybe I did something wrong, but I too am glad I only made half a batch.  Sorry! :'(

Ok, after reading through all of the comments, I'd be a fool not to give this a try.

I have been dying for some cheese.

Question-would any old blender work alright?  I thought I remembered hearing something about not blending only dry ingredients.

Absolutely 5 stars!!! 10 stars if I could! I cannot say enough good things about this sauce. I also can't believe it took me 2 years of being a VegWebber to make this... I am so glad I did! The only things I changed were to use oatmeal in place of half the cashews (as suggested by others), added a tiny pinch of tumeric, and instead of seasoning salt, I used a spice blend called "Sandwich Sprinkle" that Peneys Spices makes. INCREDIBLE! My boyfriend compared it to white cheddar, and I can't disagree! Holy moly, wow. I really had high expectations for this recipe, and it did not disappoint! Works well with all water, as well as soymilk for half of the water, too.

As a new vegan, the only food I thought I'd miss was cheese. NO MORE! This is so easy and excellent! I didn't have raw cachews, so I used roasted, but left out the salt and added a teaspoon more of arrowroot and did not have onion powder so I substituted with dried onion and added it to the nuts when blending. For a little more color and some zing to the flavor I added just a pinch of tumeric. It turned out sooo good. It was excellent with some nachos with some vegan sour cream, salsa and guacomole. Hurrah! I get my cheese! Thank you Dragonfly for the wonderful recipe! ;D

I'm excited to try this one.  I've made a similar concoction with almonds and nutritional yeast to substitute for Parmesan cheese.  I found that it tasted great in recipes that called for Parmesan, but not so great staight - like on spaghetti. 
For those of you that didn't fall in love with it.  Try it in recipes instead of eating it straight.  It'll probably work better for you.

:DUm, can I give this like 20 stars instead of just 5???  I mean really!  This stuff is amazing.  I know it has probably been around forever, but I never knew about it and I have to say I am sooooooo happy to have found it!  It's delicious and by far the best sub for cheese I have found.  I am just loopy with joy over "uncheese"!!!  I would say I am weird, but I have seen how many great comments there were for this recipe and I know I am not the only one going gaga for it!!!  Great, fantastic recipe.  LOVE IT!!!
