Plant Based Cheesy Sauce
  1. Soak the cashews for a minimum of 1 hour in water or boil them for 5 minutes. Drain.
  2. Add all ingredients to a blender. Blend until smooth.
  3. Pour the mixture into a small saucepan and heat gently, stirring constantly.
  4. The sauce will become very lumpy as it thickens. This is the nature of tapioca flour. Keep stirring and the sauce will come together smooth, thick and glossy.
  5. Once thickened, the sauce is ready to serve.
Recipe Notes

* 1 tbsp tapioca flour makes a sauce consistency, great for coating and pouring. 2 tbsp makes a much thicker cheese, more like mozzarella –  excellent for pizzas and sandwiches.

I generally use just 1 tbsp and use it for pizzas etc anyway. It thickens up considerably once cooled.
