Ingredients

Cheesy Sauce:

  • 1 cup cashews
  • 2 cups non-dairy milk
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 Tablespoons arrowroot flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

Potatoes

  • 7-8 medium Yukon gold potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • Fresh herbs to garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Grease a 9x13 baking dish. Set aside.
  2. Soak cashews in boiling water for about 15 minutes, then drain.
  3. Add all ingredients for the cheesy sauce to a blender and blend on high for about a minute, until completely smooth. The sauce will be very thin at first but don't worry as it will thicken up while baking. 
  4. Spread a layer of potato slices, followed by diced onion, then pour half the sauce over them. Add a final layer of potato slices and top with remaining sauce.
  5. Bake for 1 hour or until top is golden brown and potatoes are tender.
  6. Allow the scalloped potatoes to rest for at least 10 minutes, then garnish with fresh herbs. Enjoy!
