Foodie Friday: Healthy Queso Dip!
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.
