Vegan Cashews & Peanuts “cheese” (spread).
No matter how vegan I am, cheese is cheese and this is not! But it is very very amazing. Originally this is supposed to be a cashew cheese, but I suck at reading and I bought mixed cashews and peanuts - worked out perfectly though!
What you need:
- 1 cup of cashews (peanuts are optional!) soaked in 3 cups of water for at least an hour!
- 1 tablespoon of nutritional yeast (optional - adds cheesy flavour!)
- Salt to taste
- Ground pepper to taste
- 1 teaspoon of lemon juice
Soak cashews in water for at least an hour (mine were in for a day, works perfectly if you don’t have a strong food processor).
Place them in a food processor along with 1 tablespoon of soaked water (I use Nutribullet blender and it worked just as well!) along with lemon juice, salt, ground pepper. Mix until completely smooth (if required, add more water!)
This goes amazingly with some multiseed crackers <3
