When I saw these videos a few weeks ago, I decided I needed to make this entire meal sooner than later…

Here are my results, everything was delicious!  I’m showing you mostly pictures up-front because I hardly changed anything.  You can find the “Smoky Chipotle No-Queso” recipe here.  For the rest, you can check out my map of the “It’s Nacho Business” meal here.

We found a couple of these “love mushrooms”… unfortunately we had to separate them. :/

Enchilada filling: mushrooms, red pepper, onions, and cumin. Everything is better with cumin

Queso, before blending.

Queso complete!

my full plate.

This recipe made 20 enchiladas (two 13×9 pans)

Papaya Salad and Nacho fixings. The salad dressing is at the top of my favorite salad dressings ever.

This recipe is a veganized version of Emeril’s Cucumber Soup found here.  The cashew sour cream is a modification of this recipe. 
Ingredients:
  • 6 cucumbers (6 pounds), peeled, seeded, and coarsely chopped (12 cups)
  • 2 yellow bell peppers, stem and seeds removed, coarsely chopped
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 2 jalapeño peppers, minced (I used the seeds out of one of the peppers)
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 Tbsp finely chopped fresh dill
  • 1 Tbsp finely chopped fresh mint
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 cups plain soy yogurt
  • 1 recipe cashew sour cream (see below)
  • 2 tsp white wine vinegar
  • rounded 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • rounded 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/8 tsp dried thyme
  • for garnish: fresh minced chives and extra batch of cashew sour cream

Directions:

Combine all ingredients except garnish in a large bowl.  Working in batches, puree the ingredients in a blender until very smooth.  Transfer the soup to the refrigerator until well chilled, at least 2 hours.  Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.  Serve soup with each bowl with a sprinkle or two of salt and garnished with a dollop of sour cream and some minced chives.

Cashew Sour Cream

  • 1 cup cashews, soaked in 1 1/2 cups water overnight or longer, and drained
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • juice from 1/2 a lemon (1-2 Tbsp)
  • 1/3 cup water

Blend all ingredients in a blender for a few minutes till smooth (you may have to scrape the sides of the blender a couple times to ensure all the cashew pieces are incorporated).

This was both creamy and light, with a little kick! …perfect summer soup.
