you can’t grow up in the mid-south without loving yourself some pimento cheese.  here’s my dairy free version.  leave it vegan or and a little carnivore flavor to it by mixing in some chopped up bacon bits!

 

RECIPE:  VEGAN PIMENTO CHEESE

SERVES 4

2 tbsp daiya cream cheese

1 small jar pimentos

1/2 cup veganaise

1/2 tsp ground pepper

1tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp red ground pepper

mix all ingredients together in a bowl. its best to use your hands to get it evenly mixed.  serve as a sandwich or on top of some fried green tomatoes!

They asked for red, white and blue pies and one to have stripes…that was a new one for me, but it turned out to be easier to pull off than I thought it was going to be.

If you need some patriotic pies for your cook-out, these recipes will do the trick!
