There are a few staples that I miss dearly being dairy-free among my many other dietary restrictions, a few of those being staples at taco night… *clears throat* queso… sour cream… cheese… all the good things! So since I’ve been sticking to the opt-out of dairy lifestyle and finding substitutes or alternate recipes to fill in those gaps, I wanted to share a few recipes I have my eyes on and will be testing out in the kitchen here shortly.
For any of those newer to the dairy free world, in case you didn’t know but a lot of recipes use cashews as a substitute for cheese.
Vegan Queso: I’ve been scoping out a few different recipes a spicy jalapeno recipe, this delicious looking one, and then one surprisingly with eggplant instead of cashews! I’ve already assessed a few of these and know I’ll have to peel back on some of the ingredients and alter accordingly to make sure they’re kosher for my stomach – but that is the fun part about cooking!
Dairy-Free Sour Cream: A 10-minute recipe to give you the taste and texture of real sour cream, sign me up! This recipe looks so easy it would be silly not to try it out – and have as the perfect topper for build-your-own tacos!
While I continue to research and look for more dairy-free recipes to try, I feel like I can at least start getting back to a normal taco night by incorporating these recipes in. I’m also super lucky that B not only is game to eat and try these different recipes out, but he often takes the first step and makes a lot of them with me! It definitely helps being on the same page when it comes to diet and restrictions, because it can become a lot to remember!
Do you have any dairy free recipes that you just love? Leave me a comment! I want to try them!
