Vegan Queso

vegan queso


For those of you that say “I could never give up cheese,”  I encourage you to give this a shot.  It’s so good!

Like most of my recipe attempts, amounts given should be considered guidelines more than strict directions.  Play around with quantities to suit your taste.

1 cup raw, overnight soaked cashews (I like to drain and soak again in warm water for about 10 minutes before making for a warm queso)
Juice of one lemon
2 or 3 tablespoons of nutritional yeast
A few squirts of Sriracha or more
Teaspoon of salt
Maybe a little cumin
1/4 cup warm water to soften the mix
Blend all ingredients in your Vitamix, Blendtec, blender or whatever you use.  Blend until creamy, taste, adjust seasoning as needed, blend some more.  I find I’m always adding Sriracha.  I also tend to blend it for a long time as it will become super creamy.  Enjoy with all your Mexican meals or on it’s own.  Hope you like!


Peace & plants:)
