The cheese sauce contains cashews, and the sweet potato is perfect for rounding out their nutty heaviness. Steaming a small amount of sweet potato and blending it with the cashews and flavorings lightens the overall sauce and adds a vibrant orange hue that more closely resembles a “real” cheese sauce.



  • 2 medium cooked sweet potato
  • 3/4 cup raw cashews
  • 2 cups Water, tap, well
  • 3/4 cup Water, tap, well
  • 1 cup Steamed Sweet Potatoes
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 4 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
  • 2 tbsp Tamari Sauce
  • 1 tsp Tamari Sauce
  • 1 tsp Spices - Smoked Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper, Coarse Black


1 Soak cashews in water for one hour, or up to eight hours. When ready, drain cashews and rinse well.
2 For fries, make sure your cooked sweet potatoes have been cooked and sliced to your liking.
3 Add all ingredients except fries into blender and blend until creamy and smooth, adding more water if needed to achieve desired texture
4 Place fries on a plate or in a bowl and pour sauce over
