Rated 5 out of 5 by jumpypup from Surprisingly YUMMY! Wow, I never expected a vegan cheese to be so fulfilling! I made some cauliflower rice, sauteed it in coconut oil with some seasoning and then poured this sauce in. If you're trying to eat whole foods and miss comforts like macaroni and cheese, this will fill that void.

Can I use the soup setting on the 7500 to make this recipe?
The 7500 does not come with a soup setting, you may use the 1-10 dial. You will just need to start at 1 and take the machine up to 10 while blending. If your machine does come with a soup setting you are more than welcome to use that setting, feel free to shut the machine off once reaching the desired consistency if the cycle has not yet finished.
