Cookbook Countdown: 18 Days to Go: Quick Queso
I have no less than six recipes for "cheese" in my cookbook.
Drum roll please: nacho cheese, cheddar cheese, quick queso, mexican queso, tofu basil ricotta and melty pizza cheese.
All of them are completely fat-free (well, except the ricotta which has a smidgen of fat naturally from the tofu) and they're instant to make!
And although I could eat any of these "cheeses" with a spoon (and I may have done that a time or two) the quick queso is my latest obsession of the bunch.
Since you only need a handful of ingredients to make it (nutritional yeast, non-dairy milk, spices) and it comes together as fast as you can whisk (seconds) there's no excuse not to have queso at every meal... I've taken to making it almost every night this week. The one night when I didn't make it Scott asked if we'd ran out of the ingredients! I guess he's hooked too!
