Sweet & Spicy Queso
So I've finally accepted the fact that my stomach will never love dairy again. It's completely unfair and I still fold my arms and pout about it every now and then. Luckily, the heavens have opened up and poured out this vegan liquid gold. This queso tastes so similar to the real thing, one bite set my soul on fire. (I really love cheese, you guys. Okay?) I've tried a few different methods, (eggplant based & cashew based) but, I think this is definitely my fave.
3-4 TBSP Vegan Butter | 4 Cloves Garlic, Minced | 1-2 Jalapeno Peppers, Seeds Removed | 1 Sweet Green Pepper | 4 TBSP All Purpose or Whole Wheat Flour | 1 1/2 Cup Almond or Cashew Milk | 5 TBSP Nutritional Yeast | Sea Salt to Taste | 1 TSP Ground Cumin | 1/2 TBSP Coconut Sugar or Sweetener of Choice
Mince garlic and dice peppers; add to a hot pan over medium heat with vegan butter. Saute until garlic begins to brown.
