Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Vegan Cheese Sauce (Cheeze Sauce)

A tasty gluten free dairy free cheesy mixture that contains no cheese, dairy, gluten, nuts. It is free of all of the common allergens.


  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds, ground
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons certified¬†gluten free oat flour
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons potato starch (or cornstarch or tapioca flour)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/16 teaspoon stevia powder
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar


  1. Place all of the dry ingredients into a small saucepan, preferably nonstick, but not mandatory.
  2. Add the water and vinegar and stir. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thick, about 15 minutes (see the video for texture). You can also use a hand blender or small food processor to puree it for a smoother texture, if desired.
  3. Transfer to a heat-proof container allowing it to reach room temperature. Serve warm or cover and refrigerate until chilled, 1 - 2 hours. Serve with raw vegetables and/or crackers as an appetizer dip. For pasta, add a little oil, if desired, plus some water, milk, or white wine to thin it a bit. You can use the pasta sauce for fondue as well.
