Good morning, dear friends! This post has been written after many interruptions! My babyboy has been really naughty today and wouldn’t let me write my post! Anyway a few months ago my hubby bought me a great cookbook written by my favourite food blogger «The Minimalist Baker». Dana has done an amazing job offering her fans 101 delicious plant based recipes! I chose to make a not so ordinary recipe for the greek readers. Vegan queso! It tastes heavenly! So easy to make and although it is cheeseless, you can feel the cheesiness! If you don’t like garlic, reduce the quantity. I didn’t use chili powder cause I cant stand spicy food. My only addition was fresh peppermint leaves. We loved this vegan queso!  You should definitely try it!

Kisses and hugs! Enjoy your weekend, guys!
