Used to be you had to be from the southern U.S. to know about pimento cheese but it has spread like wildfire recently. It's a crowd pleasing party dip, potluck dish and picnic snack and now you can make it dairy free, Vegan and Paleo. Don't tell your dairy-loving friends and notice how no one will miss the dairy! Need supplies? Try an Urban Cheesecraft Dairy Free Cheddar, Mozzarella and Ricotta Kit and you'll have everything you need to make the vegan and paleo cheese needed for this.

STEP 1. 
Select your cheeses- look for soft textures that can become spreadable if mashed or grated. This recipe was born out of test kitchen leftovers here at UCC headquarters! It's very flexible and forgiving but texture is important. Our kits use agar to solidify these cheeses and that gives us the perfect texture after a couple of days.
select your cheese
STEP 2.  
Mash the mozzarella, shred the smoky cheddar and pile on all other ingredients. Stir thoroughly. If you can't find pimentos (tiny jars, really inexpensive), you can chop up roasted and peeled red bell peppers (homemade or purchased jar).

If you can't find a smoked cheddar and you haven't made the insanely easy and delicious version in our kits yet, add 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika.
stir ingredients
STEP 3.  
It should look invitingly chunky but spreadable. Pile it in a nice serving dish and grab some crackers, bread or raw veggie sticks. It makes an addictive dip and sandwich spread. You won't know how you lived without pimento cheese before. Now it's dairy free. Move over hummus!

Customize it - Want it spicy? Add a pinch of cayenne pepper or diced pickled peppers. Want it probiotic? Add chopped kimchi. Make it yours and let the requests begin!
