GARDEN & HERB "CHEESE" DIP
OMG. My whole family was reveling in its cheesy goodness. If you want to impress non vegans with vegan food make this spread.
This recipe does require some advanced planning, as the nuts need to be soaked for a few hours or overnight. In short - soaking raw nuts makes the enzymes in them more active, thus making them more digestible.
1 1/2 cups soaked cashews
2 tsp light rice miso
3/4 tsp sea salt
2 1/2 tsp lemon juice
3 tbsp water
2 Tbsp. of each: chopped red pepper, parsley, green onion, and carrots
Process cashews until smooth paste forms, add in all other ingredients (except for red pepper, parsley
and green onion). Process until smooth. Scoop into a bowl and cover with a towel or plastic wrap. Let sit in a warm place for 12-24 hours so the miso can ferment the cheese.
Then mix in veggies/herbs. Serve with flax crackers or cut up vegetables.
Okay... So what did you think?
