Vegan Cheese Sauce (Instant Pot Potato Carrot Cheese Sauce)

The best Vegan Cheese Sauce made with veggies in the Instant Pot! It’s perfect for making classic mac and cheese but also tastes amazing with veggies, rice, or as a base for dairy-free cheese dips or use over nachos or baked potato! Gluten-free & nut-free option.

Here’s an amazing Vegan Cheese Sauce that is super smooth, very creamy, and irresistibly cheesy. The best part? It’s all made in the Instant Pot so pretty hands-off! It tasted just like the real deal and your guests won’t believe it’s vegan!

Now, I already have this Vegan Queso recipe in the archive but while the queso recip0e is ideal as a dip or for nachos, this is more of an all-purpose cheese sauce. It’s brilliant drizzled over veggies and obviously utterly divine with pasta. Actually, it goes so well with pasta ! I added a Mac cheese recipe to the recipe card.

The recipe starts off with some creamy vegetables like cauliflower or zucchini, carrots, and potatoes. Cashews add more creaminess,  and we also add in some spices like ground mustard, garlic, and onion powder for flavor. Then two important ingredients – miso paste and nutritional yeast! These two additions add the umami so don’t skip them.

Nutritional yeast has nothing to do with the active dry yeast that you buy for baking. It’s deactivated yeast and you can find it online at amazon but also at grocery stores. Adding nutritional yeast to dips and sauces lends them a cheesy flavor that you will find to be very addictive.

On to the method: This vegan cheese sauce recipe is so quick and simple to make using the Instant Pot. Simply dump everything together in the pot, cook it on high pressure and then puree it in a blender into a smooth creamy sauce. DONE!

I love to use this cheese sauce for Mac and cheese, over tacos, in deep dish cheesy pizzas or pastries. It’s versatile and so delicious!
