Chef Kenzie’s Dairy-Free Stuffed Mushrooms
One of Chef Kenzie’s favorite snacks are these simple dairy-free stuffed mushrooms. The stuffing is so rich and creamy, and can be used in many different recipes. You can use it as a dip, a spread for Grain-Free Waffles, or as a stuffing for your favorite meats or veggies!
So, what makes this dairy-free filling so rich and creamy? Soaked cashews! Cashews are naturally rich in fat – so when they are soaked and blended, they take on an incredibly rich and creamy texture. The best part? You can use soaked cashews (or other soaked nuts) in a wide variety of dishes – from sweet to savory to warm to cold – it all works!
In addition to the soaked cashews, Chef Kenzie also uses nutritional yeast in her recipe. Nutritional yeast provides a salty, umami, “cheesy” flavor. It is commonly used in vegan “cheese” recipes, and can be a great addition to both warm and cold dishes. Simply mix the nutritional yeast into your soup, sauce, dip, etc., and enjoy a salty, “cheesy” flavour while eating a plant-based meal!
