When I first switched over to a healthy plant-based lifestyle years ago, one thing that I really missed was CHEESE. Cheese for pizza, tacos, baked potatoes, lasagna, and so much more.

Though there are a few packaged vegan kinds of cheese available, all of them are loaded with artery-clogging saturated fat, and that is something my family tries to avoid.

That’s why over the years, I have come up with these 8 healthy vegan cheese recipes for Cheddar No-Cheese Sauce, Tofu Ricotta, Cashew Mozzarella, Sweet Potato Cheese Sauce, and Nacho Cheese Sauce. Believe me, you’re going to LOVE them! There’s even a Sliceable Cheese version.

Which vegan cheese sauce tastes the best?

There are so many different types of vegan cheese sauces. Each one has its own merits and can be used in different recipes. For instance, we love this cheddar flavor cheese sauce, as well as Sweet Potato Sauce mixed with salsa and on Nachos.

The Mozzarella Cashew Cheese has become our favorite for Vegan Pizza and French Onion Soup.

Vegan Ricotta Cheese is perfect to serve on crackers or crusty bread chunks, as well as in Spinach Black Bean Lasagna.

Wow! I just made this cheese sauce and it is by far the best. I just made a scrumptious dinner. I lined a dinner plate with fresh spinach then I put boiled baby potatoes and broccoli on top of the spinach then poured this cheese sauce all over. MAN OH MAN
