When I first gave up dairy, cheese was the hardest food to stop eating. I mean it’s CHEESE! There are awesome vegan ice creams, milks, butters and even yogurts, but cheese is hard to recreate.
This vegan nacho cashew cheese is delicious, and barely lasts the night at my house when its made. I hope your family enjoys it as much as we do. We serve it with corn chips, vegetables, tacos, fajitas, etc.
You can play around with how much roasted red pepper you put in the dip to intensify the taste. You can also leave the roast red peppers out of the dip for a plainer cashew cheese dip.
