This healthy version of raw queso is a major party pleaser!  It’s so delicious no one will know how healthy it is!

Ingredients

  • 2 – cups of Cashews
  • 1/2 cup of Nutritional Yeast
  • 1/2 cup of diced fresh Tomato
  • 1/2 of a small Onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of fresh whole Garlic peeled
  • 1 – small Jalapeño, seeds and ribs removed finely chopped
  • Juice from one small lime
  • 1/2 bunch of cilantro washed and diced stems removed
  • Water as needed
  • Sea salt, to taste

Directions

  1. Drain the cashews and place into vitamix (or other high speed blender).
  2. Add, the nutritional yeast and cloves of garlic.
  3. On a low speed, begin blending the nuts while adding water a little at a time. (You want this mixture to have the consistency of regular queso so be cognizant of adding the water slowly and you are blending.)
  4. Blend until the cheese is creamy about 3- 5 minutes.
  5. Chop onion, tomato, cilantro + jalapeño mix together and add the fresh lime juice and sea salt. Place Cashew queso in a bowl and top with your salsa fresco, serve with your favorite organic chip or fresh cut vegetables.
