Vegan Cheese Dip

So often people realize that they can dramatically improve many health issues (like eczema, congestion, and allergy) by avoiding dairy foods. But there’s always that panic that they can’t live without cheese. Not to worry! Not only are there many delicious plant based cheese products at the store nowadays (for example Miyoko and Parmela), but it’s incredibly easy to make your own. The vegan cheese recipe below is quick to prepare and always a crowd favorite.

¼ cup fresh lemon juice
¼ cup tamari
¼ red bell pepper (organic if possible)
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1½ cups raw macadamia nuts, raw cashews, or a combination

In a high speed blender such as a Vitamix or a food processor, blend ingredients until smooth. If you are not using a high speed blender, mince the garlic or put it through a garlic press first. Serve with crackers such as Mary’s Gone Crackers.
