This creamy cashew queso dip is made with ZERO processed ingredients, for an authentic tasting, full flavored, dairy free alternative to this well loved dip. SO crave worthy and made with anti-inflammatory, good-for-you ingredients! Vegan + whole30 compliant.
Say it with me: QUESO QUESO QUESO! That’s right. We’re talking cheese dip today. But not just ANY cheese dip.
This creamy cashew queso dip is made with no dairy – NONE. Only simple + good-for-you plant based ingredients that make it vegan, paleo, and whole30 compliant.
I have been wanting to share a recipe for this for awhile because queso is one of those delicious snacks that has the power to make a person SO happy. Amirite?! And I think we can all agree that everybody needs more happy food in their lives.
Maybe it’s because dipping things into creamy, gooey cheesy flavored goodness is close to a spiritual experience, or maybe it’s just because it’s so damn delicious. Either way – I’M IN and I hope you are too!
Because you can have a queso party for one, but it’s a lot more fun if we all show up! 😉
It’s Friday!! Which means it’s time to kick off those old work shoes, put that bottle of rosé on ice (or two), invite some friends over, and whip up a batch of this vegan and paleo pimiento cashew cheese dip for dipping ALL THE THINGS! 😍
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m in the camp of “delicious dips are life”.
In case you want to know the exact order of where my love for delicious dips falls, it goes something like this:
My family and friends
Yep. That list looks about right 😉
I’m not sure where the idea to make a pimiento cashew cheese dip came from (cuz really?! Pimiento cheese?! It’s been a loooong time since I’ve thought about that). But I think it started with a container of glistening spicy cherry peppers calling out to me at our natural foods store. Sometimes one single ingredient can be such an inspiration!
And as all the sunshine starts to inch closer and more friend and family gatherings fill our calendars, why not dream up some nutrient dense snacks that we can feel good about sharing with the one’s we love the most?
