NOW BACK TO THE VEGAN ‘CHICKEN’ BUFFALO DIP…OH MY!
This dip will soon become a favorite for all your friends and family. They will be requesting it for all BBQs this summer or baby showers, or birthdays, or whatever gatherings you might have up your sleeve. Your family will be begging for appetizers for dinner or lunch, just so they can have this dip. It is that good! The recipe is so damn simple to make, so you must try it. Jackfruit replaces the “chicken” and is perfect because of its shredded texture and ability to absorb flavors so well. OMG, I can’t wait to make this myself. I must admit Buffalo Chicken anything was one of my favorites during my pre-vegan days so this dip is magical in my eyes.
Vegan Buffalo Chicken-Less Dip
- 1 cup Raw Cashew Nuts
- 1 medium Onion diced
- 3 stalk medium Celery diced
- 225 g Native Forest Organic Young Jackfruit hand-shred
- 12 tbsp Primal Kitchen Buffalo Sauce or your brand choice
- 1 tbsp SunCoCo cooking oil
- 4 Nutritional Yeast
- 1/2 cup Water Filtered
- 8 tbsp Follow Your Heart organic vegan mayo
- 3 cloves Garlic
- Overnight or hot water soak for 10-15 minutes 1.5 cups of cashews.
- Dice onion & celery
- Heat 1 Tbsp of oil over med/high heat. Add onions and celery and saute until browned and onions are translucent.
- Peel and press garlic (don’t own a garlic press… then you’re welcome to the kitchen tool that saves the day… otherwise…mince mince mince)
- Hand shred the canned jackfruit (this can be made with fresh jackfruit, if available in your area).
- Add pressed garlic and jackfruit to the onion and celery mixture on the stove. Saute until fragrant.
- Add 1/4 – 1/2 Cup of preferred buffalo sauce. I am choosing Primal Kitchen as it is the cleanest I have found. Saute 3-5 minutes. Then put a top on it and remove it from heat.
- Strain cashews, add nutritional yeast, strained cashews, and 1/4-1/2 cup of water, 1/2 cup mayo to the blender. Drizzle in water as need, until the consistency of queso cheese.
- Add sauce to saute pan, mix to heat over low/medium heat OR bake @325° for 15 minutes.
- ENJOY! Serve with fresh-cut veggies and dig in.
