Veggie Cheezz

This recipe takes cheesy flavor to a new point using vegetables as a base. We think it offers a delightful twist. Try it and let us know what you think!

Ingredients
  • 2 cups peeled potatoes, diced
  • 1 cup peeled carrots, diced
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil (you may use olive oil, if you prefer)**
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (or water, if you prefer)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

**Note that coconut oil hardens at a higher temperature than olive oil. Therefore, if you want a firmer cheese, use coconut oil. However, for a more liquid version at room temperature, we recommend olive oil. ALSO, try substituting avocado or silken tofu for an oil-free version!

 

Directions
  • Boil potatoes and carrots until soft
  • Put all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth
  • Use immediately for store up to a couple of days in an airtight container in the refrigerator
