Yes, you read that correctly: healthy queso dip.  This is creamy and delicious!  I literally could lick the bowl clean!  You can use this dip for your standard corn tortilla chips, veggie slices, or as a topping on a buritto bowl.  It is a super fast and easy recipe, you just have to soak the cashews in water for about 4 hours prior to making it.
Healthy Queso Dip (vegan, dairy free, gluten-free)

  • 1 cup raw cashews (walnuts will also work for those with a cashew allergy) soak in water for 4 hours
  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • juice from one lemon
  • 1/8 teaspoon tumeric
  • 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast (non active yeast)
  • 15oz can of diced tomatoes with chilies

 

Drain the cashews (or walnuts) and place all ingredients, except the can of tomatoes and chilies, in a high-powered blender (Vitamix is my favorite).  Blend until smooth. pour into a bowl and stir in the can of tomatoes and chilies by hand.

This can be served warm, room temperature or chilled.

Makes 16 servings.
