Support local vegans + your love of nacho cheese!  »

Never Felt Better, the adorable all-vegan store in Sacramento that we all love, has a Kickstarter to raise money to put in a !!!!VEGAN NACHO CHEESE BAR!!!!  If you’re reading this blog then I’m assuming you love nacho cheese. If you’re reading this blog and you don’t love nacho cheese then don’t be reading this blog, you feel me? JK PLEASE DON’T LEAVE WE NEED THE HITS TO VALIDATE OUR EXISTENCE/LOVE YOU.

Anyway, the money you’re donating is going to support the ONLY all-vegan store in California and nacho cheese and the vegan economy. If you’re a vegan with a little extra change in your pockets, do a solid and kick them some. Also, please see our coverage of vegan cheese because it’s pretty great, if not poorly tagged. FUCKING TUMBLR. Now, some nachos one time for your mind:

Rethinking nacho cheese  »

Shmooed Food’s nacho cheese sauce changed my life. I had already been making it with cashews, but Vegan Lunch Box's addition of corn starch took it to the next level.

Out of necessity, I swapped out the mild pimentos for jalapeños, cashews for pistachios, and lemon juice for lime. It. Was. DELICIOUS.

Blend the following, adding the water slowly:

•    1/4 cup pistachios
•    1 phat (and fat) juicy jalapeños
•    1 cup nutritional yeast
•    a pinch of garlic salt
•    the juice of 1 lime
•    about 2 Tbs. cornstarch
•    2 cups water
•    a dash of paprika

When dat shit is fully pureed, heat it (while whisking) until it’s thick and bubbly—about five minutes. I made it for a party last night and after 20 minutes, it looked like this:
