What the hell is in movie nachos anyway?

They don’t really taste like cheese, but they are all creamy and warm and spicy. A collection of adjectives that are very attractive! So how can we get all that in a raw food, vegan recipe for cheese?  No worries my movie-loving friend.  The video below shows you how to whip up a batch of this raw vegan nacho cheese.  Use your mandolin to make some chips from fresh veggie chips and snack away.


Recipe for Raw, Vegan Nacho Cheese


Cheese Base:
1 cup macadamia nuts, soaked 8 hours, rinsed & drained
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon turmeric
dash cayenne pepper
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
3 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
Water (add as needed to reach desired consistency)

Fresh salsa
2 cups ripe tomatoes
3/4 cup loosely packed cilantro leaves
1/2 to 1 teaspoon minced jalapeno (seeded)
3 tablespoons lime juice
1/4 tsp sea salt

Eat with veggie chips (mandolin sliced jicama and/or carrots with a dash of salt & a squeeze of lime)

This recipe is best with raw macadamia nuts soaked for 8-10 hours, rinsed and drained, but roasted. Dry nuts also work. Blend nuts, turmeric, cayenne, salt, water, and fresh lemon juice in the Vita-Mix until creamy. The mixture warms as it blends. Add extra water if you prefer a thinner consistency. Stir in fresh salsa to desired spice level.
