How to make the cheesiest vegan queso dip?

Well, a potato’s natural starch blended with cashews and soy milk will give you the gooiest, velvety cheese texture. The Nutritional yeast and typical queso seasoning mix-ins will give you a queso dip so rich and flavourful, you won’t miss the dairy. 

I like soy milk best for this recipe because it’s thick and has a high protein content which helps the texture of the dip. Soy milk also won’t make this recipe too sweet, but you could opt for an unsweetened plant-based milk. If you want a soy-free version of this recipe, or you prefer another type of milk, unsweetened oat, rice or cashew milk will work as well.

  • Awesome.

  • It’s incredible how cheesy this tastes – I made it today to accompany some tortilla chips and couldn’t resist to put it on my tacos as well – will make this again many, many times.

  • Hi there, all the time i used to check webpage posts here early in the dawn, because i love to gain knowledge of more and more.

  • This is by the best non dairy queso dip I have had yet. I made for myself and my boyfriend as a movie snack, and didn’t even realize it was vegan. Well done.

  • Edgy veg cheese recipes are some of my favourite posts from this site and this one did not disappoint!
