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!

Ingredients

  • One Package of Firm Tofu
  • 1/4 an Onion
  • 1/4 a Red Pepper
  • Handful of Kale
  • Squeeze of Lemon Juice
  • 3 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • 1 tbsp Turmeric
  • 1 tbsp Black Salt
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper

Start by getting excess water out of the tofu and put to the side

Chop up the onion, pepper, and kale

Put kale into a separate bowl and add a squeeze of lemon juice. Massage the kale until soft; should be about a minute

Sauté the onion, pepper, and kale in a pan with some olive oil

Add the spices and then add the crumbled tofu. Cook until the desired consistency. Add a sprinkle of vegan cheese if you want and enjoy.

We prefer this scramble on a toasted roll with some hot sauce.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Bliss Balls

Blissful is an understatement. 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups pitted and softened dates
  • 2 cups rolled oats

  • 1-2 tsp vanilla extract

Toppings or Add-Ins:

  • Coconut
  • Almonds
  • Cashews
  • Chocolate nibs or chips

Add all ingredients to a food processor and pulse until combined. The consistency should be sticky and moldable.

Roll in coconut, nuts, or chocolate for a professional finish.

(If you want just chocolate bliss balls, omit the peanut butter. If you want peanut butter bliss balls, omit the cocoa powder.)
