Ingredients

  • 1 cup All-purpose flour

  • ½ cup Vegan butter

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 300°F
  • Add the clump-free flour to a mixing bowl. Then add the sugar and salt. Mix together.
  • Add the vegan butter, at first it will be crumbly but then will form cookie dough.
  • Roll the cookie dough into a ball and then flatten it out on a flour dusted surface and cut out some cookies with a knife or cookie cutter.
  • Roll the cookies in sugar and then place them onto a baking tray.
  • Repeat the process with the dough.
  • Bake in the oven for 30-45 minutes. Remove and cool before enjoying!

Easy Vegan Nacho Cheese

Vegan nacho cheese. Can it be done? Yes, it really can! This recipe will have you telling others that it’s “not yo cheese!”


Ingredients

  • 2 cups potatoes, diced large
  • 1 cup carrots, diced large
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup nutritional yeast flakes (but to be completely honest I always double the serving of nutrional yeast in all my recipes)

Optional Additions

  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp paprika/smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp vegan chicken-style seasoning

Instructions

  • Boil the potatoes and carrots in water until soft
  • Blend potatoes, carrots, water, oil, and seasonings on high in a blender until the ‘cheese’ is smooth
  • I enjoy eating it with only tortilla chips, but it can be used in Mexican dishes, on pasta, or as a topping!
