Vegan Queso Dip & A Vegan Super Bowl!

quesodip4

There is something about smooth, spicy, Queso Dip that makes me…..

……want a beer.

Which is an actual MIRACLE because I am a diehard Wino. In my mind literally EVERYTHING goes with wine. Oatmeal…gummy bears at the movies, hot dog at the baseball stadium (No judging!). So the fact that Queso actually makes me crave beer  means that Bud better get on this if they want to catch the .001% of us that don’t have a problem getting booed in the wine line at Wrigley Stadium.

 

So to honor this wrinkle in time I’ve come up with a whole round-up of crave worthy Vegan football food that pairs perfectly with football’s favorite drink! So let’s start with my Queso Dip

Guys. Ladies. This stuff kicks butt. Smooth and creamy, just like its dairy-ridden cousin, with the perfect spice and heat from the green chili – this  dip totally satisfies your craving for Queso! This is something I thought I wouldn’t get to eat again (dairy free lady over here) – you should have seen how excited I was when this worked!

 

For those of you unfamiliar with Cashew Cream – this secret trick with change your vegan life. And if the thought of cashew cream is throwing you off just give me a sec to explain – you puree cashews with boiling water and it turns into this fabulous mild flavored cream. This can become the base for an infinite number of creamy recipes with zero dairy. Depending on what spices and herbs you add, you can make vegan mac and cheese, fettucini alfredo, ‘cream cheese’ fruit dip, etc. etc. There are a number of ways to make cashew cream, the method I am going to use for my Queso is the quickest option. Literally just puree cashews with boiling water in a food processor. The point of the boiling water is to soften and help breakdown the cashews so you get that really smooth cream. Other methods include soaking the cashews over night or soaking for an hour or so – I wanted to get this done quick and easy so this version is a great go-to when you don’t have a lot of time!

 

Have a great weekend everyone! And a delicious Super Bowl Sunday!

Vegan Super Bowl!

  1. This sounds absolutely delicious! I can’t wait to try it out :-)

  2. This is so creative-I would never have thought of it!!! And Michael will totally meet with you for some queso and beer lol. I’ll just chill out with my water :P

  3. Kayle is so right (which is not so unusual, honestly)…this is genius! And queso totally makes me want a beer, though, to be totally honest, I could rock so queso dip with a good Cab. ;-)

    I’ll have to try this on Hubs, the anti-vegan!

  4. Super bowl dip that’s vegan! I’m really impressed by this recipe. It looks delicious and very very cheesey! Yummy. Also, all your recipes for the Super Bowl look ridiculously good. I love Nachos for the super bowl and this dip would go so well them.

  5. May I come over for the Super Bowl??? That dip looks amazing! I’ve never actually had Queso before… (Sad but true!) I’d probably load it up on carrots and celery instead of chips so I could save room for your vegan brownies, cupcakes, and PB crispy cups! ;)
