Best Vegan Queso Recipe
By Peanut Palate
👩🍳Cook Time: 10 mins
1 tbsp olive oil
½ purple onion chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
¾ tsp paprika
¼ tsp coriander powder
⅛ tsp red chili powder I used indian red chili powder, so it is spicier than normal. Feel free to use a little more.
3 tbsp nutritional yeast
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp black pepper
Pinch turmeric Just enough to make it more yellow, for color
½ cup cashew milk
½ cup raw cashews
1Take the raw cashews and boil them in hot water in a large pot on the stovetop for an hour. The water should be covering the cashews at all times. If some of it evaporates, add more.
2After an hour in boiling water, the cashews should be very soft. Drain the water, and add the cashews into a blender.
3Add in the rest of the ingredients.
4Blend until a smooth sauce is formed.
5Serve this sauce right away with chips while it's hot (since the cashews will still be hot after boiling, the sauce will be hot when it's blended). Alternatively, refrigerate and serve cold later, which will make the sauce thicker as well.
6See storage information below. Nutritional information is also given below for the entire recipe, not individual servings.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
