I LOVE CHEESE! Ok i said it, I really love cheese unfortunately for me it doesn't love me as much. Gas, bloat, tummy pains and acne are some of my side effects, which are sometimes worth it just to eat it anyway. However, I'm diving into alternatives and one of those is Cashew Cheese. All you need is a Vitamix or similar and a few ingredients to make it happen. I like to layer some on top of a good seeded bread with avocado, lemon and salt Yum!!
Toast with Cashew Cheese, Avocado and Lemon
Cashew Cheese Spread
1-1/2 Cups of raw Cashews (soaked for at least 3 hours)
1/2 cup water (may need more)
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar (recommend Braggs)
1/2 teaspoon grated fresh garlic
1/4 teaspoon celtic sea salt and pepper
So easy put it all in a blender and puree! Then put into a mason jar and let it set in the refrigerator for at least a couple hours. Use it like a cream cheese. ENJOY!
