Here is literally the shortest recipe you will ever see for the quickest best tasting vegan queso EVER.
The intro to this amazing queso will be longer than the actual recipe.
My sister came home from a girls night get together the other day with this queso. It all started with a text from her saying "I have vegan goodies for you, stay up." Naturally I sat patiently awaiting my sisters arrival. When she arrived she revealed this vegan queso and a cashew butter cup (dessert, that recipe is coming next.) I dove into the queso because I am always down to eat. SO GOOD. It was cold and a little greenish looking but my taste buds were not disappointed! The next day our friend who had made this queso sent out the recipe and I obviously have to share it for the entire would because everyone needs a queso substitute because dairy is scary and this queso doesn't make you feel like crap after eating the entire bowl. (woah total run on sentence srry) WINS ALL AROUND.
Ok, I think I have built this up enough, here you go!
Actually while looking at the recipe she e-mailed out I just realized that I didn't follow it correctly. SHOCKING? No. SAD? Yes. It's literally two ingredients and I uh would like to say I unintentionally substituted one of them.
The OG recipe calls for raw almonds. I used raw cashews. Whateves, still good!
1 and 1/4 cups of Raw Cashews
8 oz. Tomatillo Salsa Verde (I used Medium Heat)
1) Soak 1 and 1/4 cups of raw cashews in water for at least 30 minutes
2) In a blender or food processor, blend the soaked (do not include the water) cashews with about 8oz of any Tomatillo Salsa Verde, again, I used medium heat.
3) If you so choose - I heated mine up in a bowl after for 30 seconds, stirred, 30 seconds more, stirred and then 45 seconds. Boom, done!
You may say 30 minutes isn't quick but if you plan ahead and throw in those bad boys while you work out or do laundry or literally do anything in the world then the actually mixing of the two ingredients is super quick. It'll take you longer to clean your blender.
Side note, after I made this I thought of adding Nutritional Yeast to it to make it even more cheesy tasting. I am going to do this next time and edit if needed if it makes it extra good. Stand by for that.
Please see pretty pictures below of the quick process:
Crack open a beer or a nice white wine and you're all set! Or sparkling water which is what I did, yay Dry January!
