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
