Non-dairy cheese sauce (made from cashews)

Thought I'd share this since the one time I attempted to made tree nut "cheese" it turned out disastrous. But then I didn't soak the nuts first either so that may be where I went wrong. This recipe is by Isa Chandra Moskowitz (one of the authors of the Veganomicon). She uses the recipe for making Mac and cheese, but it could also be purposed for a grain-free recipe of course. The cheese recipe is done at 2:15, so you can stop watching at that point. Video is right here.

Only thing I think I'll change is substituting the corn starch in the recipe with a non-grain thickener. Perhaps a root starch like tapioca, or maybe a tiny pinch of agar-agar.
