Paleo Pimiento Cashew Cheese Dip

{vegan + paleo}

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m in the camp of “delicious dips are life”.

Paleo pimiento cashew cheese dip is the perfect whole food + dairy free swap for a southern classic!

– white wine vinegar – lemon juice – nutritional yeast – garlic powder – hot sauce (optional, or to taste) – boiling water – olive oil


In a heat proof  bowl, cover cashews with boiling water and let sit for at least 40  minutes, but up to several hours or overnight.

Drain cashews and add to the food processor along with marinated cherry peppers, hot water, white wine vinegar, lemon  juice, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, olive oil, salt and hot sauce.

Process for several minutes, stopping every so often to scrape down the sides until very smooth.

Taste, adjust salt/vinegar if desired and serve with all the things to dip!

Can also be made using a high speed blender. This option may require a little more boiling water/olive oil to get the motor running smoothly.
