This Vegan Cauliflower Queso is a dairy free version of your favorite cheesy dip! Made with roasted cauliflower, diced green chiles, spices, and nutritional yeast for that “cheesy” flavor. It’s super creamy, and even more delicious! Perfect for snacking on with chips, or drizzled over salads and burrito bowls!
5 cups cauliflower florets (1 medium head of cauliflower)
6 cloves garlic, whole and peeled
1 medium yellow onion, sliced
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons, divided – (I love Trader Joe’s)!

1 1/4 cups unsweetened almond milk or vegetable broth
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
2–4 oz cans diced green chiles
1/2 cup water
Optional toppings: sliced jalapeño, fresh cilantro, finely chopped red onion, cherry tomatoes
