Non-Dairy Cheez Sauce

This Oh She Glows recipe is a once-a-weeker in our house! Honestly this cheez sauce is to die for! We make it as a pasta sauce, throw it in our bean burritos, and serve it on top of nachos! It is so easy and so yummy!

The best part about this cheez sauce is that it is made from whole food ingredients. It isn't like store-bought fake cheeses with unpronounceable ingredients... it is made from potatoes and carrots! How cool is that!?
