5 Minute Vegan Cheezy Spread

Updated: Sep 16, 2020

Do you think you will miss cheese on a plant-based diet? You are not alone. This is the number one complaint I hear from people "I'll miss my cheese!!!" While it's true that cheese made with any animal milk is a big no-no on a plant-based/vegan diet, you don't have to give up that taste.

This "cheese" spread is so quick and easy to make and has only 4 ingredients. Spread it on crackers, use as a dip with fresh veggies, or spread on bread and toast in a skillet for a "grilled cheese" sandwich. All the taste without all the fat!

5 minute Vegan Cheezy Spread

Makes about 1 cup

1 cup hummus (use your favorite oil-free brand or make my oil-free hummus)

1/2 cup roasted red peppers from a jar

2 tablespoons nutritional yeast*

1/2 cup canned cannellini beans (white beans) or chick peas, drained and rinsed

Place all ingredients in a high powered blender and blend until smooth.

*Not familiar with nutritional yeast? Nutritional yeast is a very healthy deactivated yeast packed with B-vitamins, folic acid, selenium, zinc, and protein. It does not in any way resemble or taste like brewers yeast or bread yeast. It is a yellow flake (use the flake kind not the powder if possible) that dissolves into the food you add it to giving that cheese-nut flavor. You can find it at Whole Foods, in health food stores, or buy it online here.

Surprise your party guests with this low fat cheezy spread.
