Love Dairy-Free Appetizers? Make These Cashew Cheese Mushrooms

We're calling it now: This Cashew Cheese Stuffed Mushroom recipe is the app of 2021! Not only are they a delicious way to welcome the new year, but these bite-sized mushrooms are packed with standout ingredients to help you live a fuller, more vibrant life with every serving. The cashews and nutritional yeast provide a soft, cheesy flavor to satisfy avid cheese lovers who are looking for dairy-free alternatives.

Additionally, this recipe is made even more special thanks to the two scoops of Vital Proteins® Collagen Peptides. Unflavored and odorless, this collagen powder is easily the most versatile offering in the VP family. The blue tub is a favorite for a reason! Just add to your favorite beverages or food, mix & enjoy!

I always recommend enjoying these Cashew Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms as soon as they come out of the oven while they're still warm and soft. Have leftovers? Turn it into a dip for crackers and raw veggies.
