What’s in it?
Raw, unsalted cashews, salt, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, powdered turmeric, canned diced tomatoes with green chiles (note - I have made this using jarred salsa instead of the tomatoes)
Where did I find it?
Why do I like it?
One of the things I miss most being vegan is cheese. I have tried other plant based queso recipes and was not impressed - until this one! It really tastes like the real thing. The texture is very similar to the original. The flavor is just spot on. I served it to my family and friends who all loved it and couldn’t believe it was vegan.
It is easily to prepare with ingredients you have on hand.
Any recipe notes or tweaks?
I didn’t have any canned tomatoes, but I did have a jar of organic salsa. So I swapped 1.5 cups for the 14 oz can of tomatoes. It worked really well and I continue to make this recipe with the salsa instead of canned tomatoes. Additionally, I prefer to use foods packed in glass over cans so this swap really works for me.
