It’s Easy Being Cheesy!

What an awesome day on Show Me St. Louis.   Dana and Anthony were fantastic!  Here is the Chili Cashew Queso recipe that I made on today’s show.  The recipe is a variation of a Dana Schultz recipe from “The Minimalist Baker.”    Love her and love her recipes!

Just because you give up dairy doesn’t mean you have to give up cheese!   Many things can make milk!  You just need milk with higher fat content to make good rich cheese.  Hence, cashews!  We use this particular cheese as a sauce for macaroni and cheese, in bean dip, a Rotel dip, and in a 7 layer dip!  But one of my favorite things to use it for is the base for a broccoli potato soup!  To heat or reheat microwave, covered, in 30-second bursts, whisking at each interval and thinning with water as needed.  Or re-warm on the stovetop, whisking occasionally and thinning with water as needed.

When people find out that I am a plant-based eater they often ask,  “So what do you eat?”  I tell them I eat so much variety that I rarely eat the same meal twice!    My job is to change the perception of what it means to be a vegan or a plant-based eater.
