>My favorite Cashew Cheeze; VeganMofo#4

Posted on

>This is my go-to raw cheese and veggie dip. It’s the simplest recipe and almost definitely the most delicious.
Please be aware that I always soak raw nuts (besides walnuts) for a minimum of 8 hours before I use them. If i can soak them for 24 hours; the cheese is even smoother. This makes the nuts easier to digest and it will ensure that your chese is completely creamy.
Ingredients:
1 cup raw soaked cashews
2 large or 3 small garlic cloves; smashed
2 T cold pressed olive oil
1 T miso (i like white)
2 T cashew water
juice of a half lemon

food process garlic, lemon, olive oil, cashew water and miso until smooth. Add cashews and food process until smooth. Store in the frige in an air tight container; this is good for 5 days.
My husband loves this stuff on sandwiches, pizza, in pasta bakes and for raw veggies. Personally, I could eat it on it’s own, but i try not to do that.

About laceythevegan

I'm a reader, a food lover, a crazy cat lady, an animal lover, local shopper and local music supporter. You can find me in East Nashville most of the time, shopping, having a drink at a locally owned bar, or eating food at a local restaurant. I like cumin and smoked paprika way more than I should, winter squashes make me happy, and while I do like most fruits, I only *love* berries and mangoes. I'd rather have salty snacks than sweets, and the darker chocolate is, the better. I still think Earth Balance is the best fake butter, Vegenaise is the best vegan mayo, and Almond Milk tastes better than soy milk. Chia seeds are my favorite egg substitute for the most part, and pumpkin tends to bind better than applesauce-especially in chocolate goods. I know a lot about food and nutrition, but that doesn't mean I'm the healthiest person. I tend to avoid eating out because I know I can make food that tastes better at home.
