Cheese is one of those things that some Vegans say they miss. Here is a very easy recipe for a tasty spreadable cheese!
- 2 cups raw cashews
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 lemon, zested
- 3 Tbsp of fresh lemon juice
- 4 Tbsp nutritional yeast
- 1/2 tsp each: sea salt and white pepper
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 3/4 cup water
- OPTIONAL: minced chives or dill for serving
- EQUIPMENT NEEDED: Food Processor and Cheesecloth.
-Cover the cashews with cold water and place in the fridge for 12 hours or overnight.
-Drain the cashews and add all ingredients to a food processor. Process until very smooth.
-Place a colander over a large bowl and line the colander with two pieces of cheesecloth. Scrape the mixture into the cloth and twist the cloth so it is tight around the mixture. Secure with a twist tie or elastic.
-Put the bowl and mixture into the refrigerator for 6 hours or until set.
NOTES; Sprinkle with fresh chives or dill for serving, and top with pickled jalapenos, roaster red peppers or sliced olives.
