Pimento cheese is a Southern staple that’s traditionally made with grated cheddar, a dollop of mayonnaise, and pimento peppers. So what’s a vegan to do? Whip up this dairy-free spread, of course! We use trusty plant-based ingredients like soaked cashews (for extra creaminess) and nutritional yeast (for cheesy-without-the-cheese flavor). Serve it at a party or potluck and even your meat-eating guests will fall in love.
