    I made it…I printed this recipe out and thought, I’ll make this one day. Well one day ended up being Sunday, I already had all the ingredients. I’m not vegan, yet, but need to get away from dairy as much as possible and this is a wonderful substitute. I also added a little to my fajita bowl the other night and it was great! Thanks!

    Can this be made ahead of time and stored or even frozen or canned?
