Who doesn't love queso with tortilla chips on game day? Someone who has forsworn dairy, at least. We've got the remedy -- a queso "cheese" dip made with vegetables. Plus, there's no soy or fake cheese included. This recipe was inspired by



  • 1 cup Eggplant, cooked, boiled, drained, with salt
  • 1 tsp Olive Oil, Extra Virgin
  • 1 cup Steamed Cauliflower
  • 1 cup Cashewmilk Beverage, Unsweetened
  • 3 rounded tbsps Nutritional Yeast
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 tsp Spices - Smoked Paprika
  • 1/4 tsp Spices, Ground Turmeric
  • 1 1/2 tsp Bragg Liquid Aminos All Purpose Seasoning
  • 1/2 cup Rotel Original


1 Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2 Cut eggplant into 1/2-inch rounds. Salt both sides and let sit for 10 minutes. Rinse salt off and pat dry.
3 Oil baking sheet with 1/2 tsp of olive oil. Place eggplant on baking sheet and sprinkle 1/2 tsp. of olive on top of eggplant rounds. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until soft. Turn eggplant rounds over once halfway through cooking time.
4 When eggplant is cooked, put in a covered bowl for 5 minutes. Then remove the skin from the eggplant.
5 Place eggplant, steamed cauliflower and rest of ingredients in food processor. Blend until smooth and creamy.
6 Pour into a saucepan and reheat on low.
7 Transfer to a serving bowl and place the Rotel in the middle of the queso. Serve immediately with chips and fresh veggies.
