The best damn nacho 'un' cheese sauce you will EVER eat

I am not a great fan of vegan cheeses. I love Cheezly's Melting mozzarella and Toffuti Cream Cheese and thats where it ends. I've tried lots of faux cheese sauces for all kinds of recipes and really disliked every one - until now.
I always loved that orange nacho cheese that they serve at places like the cinema, but could never manage to re create it at home, and especially since I've been avoiding cheese for quite some time now I felt I had to at least give this one last go... and it was worth it! This is honestly the best faux cheese recipe you will ever eat. It's not my recipe originally (hence american cup measures) but I adapted it quite a bit.

1 cup nutritional yeast flakes

2 teaspoons egg replacer powder

2 tablespoons corn powder (to thicken)

1/4 cup of cashews

1/2 cup of sweet peppers (from a jar)

2 cups of water

1 tablespoon lemon juice

2 teaspoons of sea salt

1/2 teaspoon onion salt

1 teaspoon of cumin

Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and process till completely mixed together and cashews have broken down.

Simmer over medium heat for around 5 minutes while stirring all the time to thicken.
