Cheesy Pepperoncini Pitas

best recipe for cheesy peperoncini pitasWhen you’re looking for a snack that’s savory and salty to enjoy while watching the game or your favorite show, these Cheesy Pepperoncini Pitas seriously deliver! Tender, buttery flatbread is topped with creamed cashew cheese that’s dotted with tangy pepperoncini, zesty lemon and earthy basil. Think of these flavorful triangles like real food Doritos!

It’s a labor of love, as you can see from the ingredient list and the instructions, but truthfully it comes together more quickly than you’d think. By making the flat breads the day before you’ll dramatically cut down on prep time, or if you have a gluten-free pita bread that you have on hand then use that.

I simply love the vegan technique of creaming cashews into a cheese spread. It’s nutritious, it’s easy (just throw everything in a food processor!) and the flavor is something special. Here are recipes where I use the vegan technique of creaming cashews in recipes:
