I smiled as I watched my kids gobble down their snack. They had no clue that I was feeding them a dish with hidden veggies in it, and it was a much healthier alternative to what we usually eat. It was my Non-Dairy Nacho Queso Dip recipe. I grabbed my bowl of delicious queso dip and headed into the dining room so I could enjoy the treat by myself. There was no way I was sharing my portion!
Actually, I have gotten pretty good at hiding vegetables and fruits into our diet. I made a decision at the start of the New Year to find creative ways to include more vegetables in every meal. I knew that by doing this that I was making small steps towards making better food decisions for my family.
Going dairy-free has also been a conscious decision on my part. Silk Almond Cashewmilk Omega 3 & Silk Almond Cashewmilk Prebiotics have made it easy for me to maintain our dairy-free lifestyle. Both are new at Walmart. I usually swap out dairy milk for a Silk dairy alternative in a recipe, and my family can’t tell the difference.
The Silk Almond & Cashew Dairy free milk with Flax is free of soy, dairy and gluten, 45 calories and a good source of Omega-3 ALA. It also has 3g of sugar or less per serving. Silk Almond & Cashew Dairy free milk with Oats is free of soy, dairy, and gluten, 50 calories with 5g prebiotic fiber per serving. It contains 3g of sugar or less per serving and 50% more calcium than dairy milk.
I love queso dip, but unfortunately, it does not love me. Therefore, my goal was to create a snack that could satisfy those who are dairy-free and those who aren’t. After making this for my kids, I knew that it was a hit! They praised me for days on how good this queso dip was! Since they can be picky, I knew this recipe was a success!
3/4 Cup of Silk Almond Cashewmilk Prebiotics
1 Cup of raw cashews
3/4 Cups of nutritional yeast
1 Tsp of chili powder
1 Tsp of garlic powder
1 Tsp of onion powder
Juice of 1/2 of lemon
4-5 pieces of cauliflower
2 Tablespoons of Jalapeno juice from the jar (it didn’t add any spice)
1 Can of diced tomatoes and green chilies
Salt to taste
Soak cashews in water for 1-2 hours. While the cashews are soaking boil cauliflower in the water on the stove until soft. Once the cauliflower is tender, take it out of the water and put it aside to cool. Once cauliflower is cool drain the water from the cashews, and add them to a blender. Add all of the other ingredients EXCEPT the diced tomatoes and green chilies.
Blend all of the ingredients together. If queso dip is too thick you can slowly add more Silk milk. However, don’t make it too thin.
When the ingredients are blended pour into a bowl and add the drained can of tomatoes and green chilies. Mix well!
