  • 1 Cup white potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • ½ Cup carrots, peeled and cubed
  • ¼ Cup vegetable oil
  • ¼ Cup non-dairy milk
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 6 pickled jalapeño slices
  • 3 tbsp jalapeño pickle brine
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • tsp arrowroot flour
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • ½ tsp sea salt


  • In a saucepan, boil the potatoes and carrots for about 10 minutes. Drain them from the boiling water and immediately put them in a powerful blender. If you cook the potatoes too long, they will turn starchy and your sauce will not be smooth. This recipe will not work in a conventional blender. The potatoes need to be whipped fast enough to break up and emulsify, creating a smooth, creamy, cheese-like sauce with undetectable potatoes! You will need a Vitamin or a Blended. I did a Magic Bullet mid-game, and it worked well too.
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth. The sauce can be hot enough to be served immediately if you're in a rush, or heat it in a saucepan to thicken it slightly before pouring it over foods you want to make more cheese! How about potato chips, chili, broccoli, or cauliflower to start.
