Aug 20, 2020

Can’t find a store-bought dairy-free cheese you like? Make your own. Made with simple ingredients you can find anywhere, this dairy-free queso comes together with just a quick blitz in the blender. Drizzle it over tacos, douse it over nachos, swap it with traditional pizza sauce, or toss it with penne for a buffalo-style mac and cheese. Your imagination is your only limitation—this sauce is fantastic on everything!

Ingredients

1 cup cashews
½ 8-ounce block tofu
¾ cup Frank’s Red Hot (or other hot sauce)
1½ tablespoons smoked paprika
1 cup nutritional yeast
¾ cup soy milk
cup olive oil
1 head of garlic
Salt + pepper to taste

Instructions

1. Soak the cashews in hot water for at least 15 minutes.

2. Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.

3. Garnish your dairy-free queso with vegan bacon and diced scallions (optional).
