Add the thinly sliced or grated potato to pan with onion and combine remaining seasoning. Stir the mixture and let simmer for about 2 minutes then combine the broth and cashews and reduce heat to medium. Stir occasionally 9-10 minutes until potatoes are fully cooked.

Pour the sauce mixture into a processor or blender and add your nutritional yeast for the cheese flavor as well as the vinegar. Blend until smooth 3-4 minutes.

Complete dish with optional toppings like, sprinkling red pepper powder on top for some extra spice or some dairy-free shredded cheese for that cheesy look.
