Shavuot, the Jewish holiday celebrating the harvest, the day God gave us the Torah, and the bounty of the earth is soon upon us (this weekend, in fact!). Religion aside, for most people Shavuot is just an excuse to stuff your face with as much cheese as you can handle… But what if you can’t (or won’t) stuff your face with any dairy at all? Well, I’m here to save your weekend with the best vegan dairy-look-alike recipes – dishes that are cruelty-free, but could fool even the most die-hard cheese lovers with their creaminess!
As long as we’re on the building blocks of vegan dairy-look-alikes, let’s move on to the next best thing after ice cream: cheesy dip. How about some gooey spinach and artichoke dip, y’all? Sign me up!
If we’re discussing cheesiness, we can’t skip nachos. No one should skip nachos. If I had a kryptonite, nachos would be it. I make nachos once a month even while on a paleo diet – I just use yam rounds and cashew cheese (but more on that some other time). If this is your first dip into dairy-free nachos, don’t get fancy – start with these loaded babies and you’ll be happy.
So what’s your favourite vegan dairy-look-alike? Let me know in the comments!
