Chèvre is the French term for goat or goat cheese. While this Baked Chevre Cheese Dip recipe from Zsu Dever contains no goat cheese, it is not your ordinary dip; it’s funky and creamy and unique, just like goat cheese is, thanks to fermented tofu. Serve it warm with potatoes, crackers, or vegetables for dipping.
4. Stretchy Potato Cheese

This warm ‘Vegveeta’ Cheese Dip from Dreena Burton has a mild flavor that can be used to accompany many foods… and also combines very well with salsa to mimic the velveeta/salsa dip from years ago. I make this without nutritional yeast, but if you like it, feel free to add in the nooch!

Is it a dip … a sauce … a condiment? Whatever you end up calling it, this Green Chili Nacho Cheese Sauce from Sara Hohn is incredibly versatile. Dip raw veggies or chips in it. Drizzle it warmed on top of steamed broccoli, cauliflower, or a medley of roasted vegetables. This recipe would make a great cheezy pasta sauce, tossed with cooked macaroni, topped with bread crumbs and baked until crispy. Got some left over? You could also try it on pizza, burritos, or gooped onto a burger or tofu dog. No idea is a bad one with this sauce.
10. Chickpea Fondue

Fondue is more than just food, it’s a whole dining experience. In this Chickpea Fondue from Sara Hohn, chickpeas take main stage, creating the silky smooth texture for the ooey-gooey dish you know and love. It’s loaded with roasted peppers, warm spices, and nutritional yeast for cheesiness.
