Potatoes and carrots form the base of this recipe. These starchy vegetables get boiled until tender and then blended into a sauce. The starch from the cooked veggies is what gives this sauce its impossibly creamy texture. From there we just add some flavoring ingredients to give it a cheesy flavor without adding an dairy or oils.
This recipe will likely make extra cheese sauce. You’re welcome. Store this in the fridge and use it to make another cheesy dinner. You could make Vegan Chili Cheese Fries which features this 3 Bean Chili recipe that you might recognize from last year.
