Serves: 3 cups
 
Ingredients
  • 2 cups raw cashews, soaked overnight
  • 1 cup cauliflower florets, steamed
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ⅓ cup lemon juice
  • ⅔ to 1 cup unsweetened almond milk or cashew milk (see instructions)
  • 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
Instructions
  1. Place the raw cashews in a bowl and cover them with 2 inches of water. Leave on the counter to soak overnight. Strain and pat dry.
  2. Steam the cauliflower for 5 to 8 minutes, until tender when poked with a fork.
  3. Add all ingredients for the queso to a blender or food processor. Start with ⅔ cup almond milk and use up to 1 cup if necessary. Note: adjusting the amount of almond milk determines the thickness of the queso. For a very thick queso, use ½ cup almond milk.
  4. Blend until completely smooth and no clumps are visible.
  5. Serve queso with Saffron Road chips or crackers.
