Vegan Queso

I've made a lot of vegan cheese in my day. I finally perfected ricotta, and I must admit the cashew herb spread I make is amazing! Alfredo sauce is also a pretty easy to make and super delicious on rice noodles or raw zucchini noodles. 

I have also had a lot of vegan cheese from vegan slices to cream cheese to beautiful artisan cheese I order at raw and vegan restaurants. 

One thing has always been missing from my vegan cheese experience. A good vegan Mexican or queso cheese to smother on nachos or add into tacos. I was very, very happy to come across this recipe and holy smokes it's good! The ingredient list is incredibly short, and you won't believe how easy this is to make. 

Please try this out and see for yourself just how amazing vegan cheese can be. Make sure to heat it up a little bit before consuming. This is a really special recipe. Enjoy!

 

Vegan Queso

1/2 cup raw cashews soaked and drained
1 cup salsa
1 small red bell pepper chopped
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp salt

Place all ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend! That's it! Heat and enjoy! Serve with tortilla chips, on top of nachos, in tacos or quesadillas or just eat with a spoon. I'll be honest, this was so good I did that a few times ;)
