Pimiento UNcheez #vegan #food

Our #2 Daughter is vegan. She used to be a big fan of pimiento cheese, and hasn’t had it for a long time, obvs. So, at the last party we had, I made this for her.

pimientoUncheezeThe basic recipe is Spicy Herb and Tomato Cheez Spread from THE ULTIMATE UNCHEEZ COOKBOOK by Jo Stepaniak, but I changed it for this.

Pimiento UNcheez

  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1/4 cup chickpea flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 Tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
  • pimientos (drained)

Place the nutritional yeast flakes and flour in a medium bowl. Gradually whisk in the water, taking care to avoid lumps. Whisk in remaining ingredients EXCEPT PIMIENTOS until smooth. Pour into a small saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring or whisking constantly until very thick and smooth. Stir in pimientos. Refrigerate until cool. Keeps about 5 to 7 days in the refrigerator.

    I just got a bag of vegan friendly MARSHMALLOWS today to review! Haven’t tried ’em yet but I am curious. I eat everything but the thought of gelatin kind of grosses me out (unless I’m down with the flu, of course) so interested in seeing how they taste without it. 🙂

      Oh, let me know how they are and (if they’re good) where to get them! I have a recipe for vegan marshmallows, but I haven’t made them yet. Know what makes me a little queasy? White sugar. It’s bleached by running it through CHARRED BONES. Kinda ick, right? We use turbinado sugar now.

        I think turbinado tastes better anyway.
        Of course any sugar..tastes…yum.

        But I need it in my coffee!
