    Yummy…but deception and lies!!! 😛

    Okay, not really deception and lies but I just really wanted to say that. Oh, and my friends always laugh about how I call something cheeze with a z. Actually, they laugh when I say I’m serving something with cheeze in the title at all…okay, they don’t laugh but they do get confused which is why I try to accentuate the z which normally just ends up with me looking stupid.

    wow, very impressive challenge to take on and looks like you did it successfully!

    I want to eat this with a spoon 🙂

    I’m ashamed to say that I don’t know what ‘tamari’ is (hangs head in shame, goes off to look for chocolate)……

  8. Joyti

    It sounds like a good dip, with that list of ingredients…

  9. jaye

    MmM totally up for this one! I love that lemon is the key in this one instead of being in the name. mMmMmacadamias!

    You’re fabulous. Just quietly 🙂 I so so can’t wait to share an office with you again. I miss you 🙁

  11. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Oh wow, this is kind of blowing my mind. When we can finally realise the whole reach into a computer for a taste of things I think this should be the first post. Because now I an desperately curious to try it!

    I was wondering where the citrus was in something entitled Raw Vegan Nacho Cheese. But I’m always willing to give you a bit of latitude, and I think you did a brilliant take on this. It does look intriguing. Can’t wait to see what you do with the rest of the year.

    what a great citrus recipe – I love seeing what others come up with – just shows how differently we all think – phew – how dull if everyone thought like me! I am still battling with raw brownies but am fascinated by vegan cheeze sauces so must bookmark this

    This is really cool! I’ve never had vegan cheeze before, and I never would have thought of making cheeze from nuts and lemon. Haha..Nuts are always good, and I can’t get enough of them too. Seems like I have a new vegetable dip for the next party. How I wish I read this post yesterday! I could have made this for the barbie that I had earlier on.

    The things I learn on food blogs. Just yesterday, I learned how to make pancakes with a packet of oatmeal, baking powder and an egg. You are performing a public service!

    WOW! One day when macadamias magically go on special, I shall try this. I do have a whole bunch of almonds, but I suspect they don’t have the creamy-nutty thing going on that this needs. To be honest I’ve never once tried anything called “Nacho Cheese” so I just know I’d be happy with this on its own terms. And you made it look gorgeous! And there’s no dehydrator or coconut oil or other difficult thing involved! 😀 and well done on subverting the citrus theme!

  17. Lisa (bakebikeblog)

    how delightful! And I have half a pkt of macadamias in my cupboard that need to be used too!

  18. sara

    hm, quite interesting. I don’t know if it compares to real cheese, but it still looks really good!

  19. ella @ lifeologia

    I was with you till the end.
    This is SO interesting I don’t believe you – I will have to get some of those nuts and the challenge is on ;D

  20. GirlonRaw

    YUMMY! You finally made a raw vegan cheese and this one looks terrific! Interesting that it didn’t have any nutritional/savoury yeast in it which is very typical of Ani I think (meaning her recipes are very uncomplicated yet tasty). This is one I’ve yet to try, and I love your idea of it being over the top of veggie noodles!

  21. Michelle

    Love the post and I am going to try this!

  23. Tammy

    I feel neither deceived or lied to. It looks amazing but half a tub in a sitting? That will put a boost in your waddle.

  24. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    It actually looks more like hummus than cheeze in your pictures! Not that there’s anything at all wrong with that, of course.

    It looks yummy, but hmm, I have a bone to pick (not very vegan of me, I know) with the “nacho” moniker. No cheeze (or anything else) can/should be called “nacho” if it doesn’t include chili powder, or at least a dash of cumin. Then again, I guess I’m kind of a Mexi-snob.

    Anyway, you could also cut down on the water a tad and add half a red bell pepper or so. Extra color + flavor!

  25. Evan Thomas

    I’ve been wanting to make a spicy “cheeze” sauce. This could be perfect for Superbowl Sunday(I won’t even be watching, but I’ll be happy to eat)

  26. Leigh

    You crack me up. What the #$%???

  27. foodie and the chef

    Oh wow this looks sooo good… I’m so naughty around macadamias though, the little gobble monster in me takes over and I can’t stop myself. I will have to make this and give it to a trusted friend to guard. Great recipe, I’m sure it would keep quite well in the fridge too (no major perishables).

  28. penny aka jeroxie

    Can’t believe that I missed this! awesome. love using tahini as a replacement.

  29. Iron Chef Shellie

    lol nice take on the theme…. me feels like doritos now 😛
