Your family and friends will be super excited to come to your house to enjoy this party appetizer during the next football game or get together to eat this homemade queso made in the Instant Pot.
This queso isn’t just any regular dip… it’s actually a huge bowl of veggies that they can scoop into and enjoy without any guilt! The vegan queso is made with all time favorites cauliflower and carrots, with a few other additions and is packed with flavor.
We made our dip in the Instant Pot, but if you don’t have an Instant Pot you can cook the veggies on the stove until they are tender, and then rinse over the sink in a strainer before blending.
Start by cooking up the cauliflower and carrots, and then combine with your spices, nutritional yeast and liquid to form a dip that’s creamy and super addictive. The recipe makes a whopping 4 Cups of dip – it does refrigerate well and is perfect to enjoy throughout the week.
Take the dip up a notch by adding a chipotle chile for a little extra smoky flavor (make your own or buy a can), and then garnish with some finely diced bell peppers, green onions and optional cilantro, and get ready to be addicted!
