>Sour Kream & Onion Cashew-Macadamia Cheeze, VeganMofo#3

Posted on

>I’m having a hard time posting on the weekends; I can’t find my camera USB either. I’m trying to make up for lost time here!
Inspired by Sarah-Fae; I’m on a mission to find the most delicious raw cheese i can make. The dry mix was inspired by http://www.addictedtoveggies.com ‘s version. I’ll be honest with you; after smelling this spice mixture I wasn’t completely convinced that I would like this cheeze-or that the flavor would be “sour cream and onion” like-but I was wrong. It’s delicious

Ingredients:
1/3 c raw macadamia nuts
3/4 c raw soaked cashews (soak for at least 8 hours before using)
3 T onion powder
1 t dill weed
1 t garlic powder
1/2 t salt (+/-)
1 t smoked paprika
1/2 t black pepper
juice from half of a lemon
1 T olive oil
1/2 t apple cider vinegar
3 T date water (can sub 1 T agave + 2 T water)

I always food process my nuts and liquids together first; and combine the spices separately in a small bowl before adding them to the food processor. Once your nut mixture is nut butter like; pulse in all your spices. Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator; this should be good for five days-but I doubt it will last that long. I love this with broccoli, cauliflower and bell peppers (which i usually HATE).

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.
