  • 1/4 cup raw cashews
  • 1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk (cashew, soy, or hemp)
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil or olive oil
  • 2 ounces roasted red bell peppers
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot powder
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon Herbamare or sea salt


  1. Place all ingredients into a blender fitted with a sharp blade.
  2. Blend until super creamy.
  3. Pour into a small saucepan and whisk over medium heat until thickened, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and let cool slightly before pouring using. The sauce will thicken as it cools.
  5. Serve immediately.


Pour over a plate of elimination friendly chips and top with your favorite toppings. Or, for a twist, pour over elimination friendly noodles as a mac n cheese substitute!
