Ingredients

  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond or soy milk
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon frozen dill
  • 1 teaspoon frozen parsley
  • 1/2 cup Frank's Red Hot Buffalo sauce
  • 1 cup vegan cream cheese
  • 2 cans young green jackfruit in brine or water

Instructions

  • First rinse the jackfruit and cut off the core. With your fingers or a fork shred the jackfruit. 
     
  • Place the cashews, the unsweetened soy or almond milk, the nutritional yeast, the garlic and onion powder, the frozen dill, frozen parsley, and salt and pepper into a highspeed blender. Process until smooth. 
  • Pour the blended cashews sauce into a bowl. Add the vegan cream cheese, the Frank's Red Hot Buffalo sauce, and the frozen parsley and dill to the cashews sauce. 
  • Add the shredded jackfruit and stir well. Either serve the dip cold or preheat your oven to 350 °F and bake it for 10-15 minutes until it's heated through. 

Notes

  • You will need a good blender to make the vegan cashew sauce. Otherwise it won’t get as creamy.
  • If you don’t have a high speed blender, soaking the cashews over night helps a lot. Otherwise you don’t have to worry about soaking them. I use a vitamix and I never soak my cashews for vegan cheese sauces.
  • Always make sure to buy young jackfruit in brine or water, not in syrup. It doesn’t work with any other kind.
  • I like to serve the dip with cucumber, carrot, and celery sticks. It's also great with tortilla strips or nachos.
