“Cheezy” Cashew Dip

“Cheezy” Cashew Dip

Thanks to Laura Theodore, the Jazzy Vegetarian, for this versatile vegan dip!

Laura says, “This yummy, ‘cheezy’ tasting dip does double duty as a sandwich spread. White beans take the place of the cheese and raw cashews add a creamy texture. Together they successfully mimic the flavor of a rich, creamy cheese dip!”
