Do you ever have food that you eat all the time and assume that everyone else knows about it, when really – they don’t – because you totally made it up?  Nacho Cheese Dip [Vegan/Gluten Free]That’s how I feel about this nacho cheese dip.  It’s made out of (typical vegan) pantry staples – which means – I can make it just about any time.  And I do.  A lot.  

Nacho Cheese Dip [Vegan/Gluten Free]Sometimes I make it and just eat it.  With chips.  Or with a spoon.  (Okay.  Confession.  I sometimes just lick the bowl).  Other times, I make it for tacos or nachos or potatoes.  OR ANYTHING.  

Nacho Cheese Dip [Vegan/Gluten Free]That’s the thing.  It’s so easy.  So quick.  So versatile.  AND so delicious.  Plus?  It has tons of nutritional yeast in it.  Which means – tons of B12.  Total excuse to eat a lot of it, right? 

Nacho Cheese Dip [Vegan/Gluten Free]Right. 🙂

  1. 1/2 cup almond meal (made by grinding almonds)
  2. 1 tablespoon of starch (corn, tapioca, or potato)
  3. 1/2 cup nutritional yeast flakes
  4. 1 teaspoon tamari (gluten free soy sauce)
  5. 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  6. 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  7. 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  8. 1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard
  9. 1 cup non dairy milk
  10. 1 tablespoon earth balance or vegan butter substitute (optional - helps with creamy texture)
  11. 1/2 cup salsa (optional)
  12. 1/2 cup black beans or bean of choice (optional)
  1. Add all ingredients to a medium size pot and heat over medium heat, stirring well - allow to bubble but don't allow it to stick on the bottom
  2. The mixture will be liquidy at first, but will thicken while heating
  3. Once thickened, serve warm
  4. Refrigerate any leftovers - will keep in the fridge for about 5 days. Also freezes well.
