This is a delicious plant-based imitation of cheese sauce. The beauty of this recipe is its versatility and flexibility. You can add more or less coconut milk to change the thickness depending on what you are using it on, whether it be for a chip dip, popcorn, or simply just a drizzle on top of a dish of your choice!
