  • ½ cup water
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • Dash of cayenne powder

Boil potatoes and carrots until tender; about 20 minutes. Drain and reserve liquid. Put all ingredients into a high-speed blender or Vitamix and blend until smooth. If cheese is too thick, add a little of the reserved liquid.
