The Cheese dip that isn't....

For those of you who are lactose intolerant or have loved ones who are, here is an INCREDIBLE recipe for a nacho cheese dip that you just won't believe. At least I didn't. It's from one of my favorite food blogs, Schmood Food. Another great name, I might add.

What I am amazed at, is the fact that the more I look at these vegan recipes, the more I think, given a few years time to acclimate to the unfamiliar ingredients and transitioning my children very slowly, we might, just might, be able to eat more and more vegan. I don't think we'd ever give up meat, we don't have a problem with local, free-range sources of beef and poultry, and we eat much less meat to be able to afford the better quality. But I can see eating more vegetable and nut based foods and fewer of the chemical concoctions that apparently make up many of our old favorites. I also didn't know how many ways there are to use beans. My new favorite is grinding them into flour and adding them to our bread dough. It makes the bread a complete protein. Considering how much bread my family likes to eat, especially my hubby, that's a very, very good thing!

What beans are you grinding? How much per loaf? Can you grind them in your Nutrimill? Lots of questions, I know, but son will NOT eat meat and I have one in the house allergic to nuts. Peanut butter is too high maintenance to have around.
