I tweaked a recipe which stated “vegan cream cheese” but I refuse to call anything “vegan [insert non vegan item]” so Savoury Cashew Spread it is! It’s nothing like cream cheese, but it’s hella delicious.
You can find nutritional yeast flakes in health stores like Holland & Barrett.
- 100gr cashews
- 100gr cashew milk
- 3 tbs nutritional yeast
- 1.5 tbs lemon juice
- pinch of salt
- pinch of pepper
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
Makes about a cup
Pour boiling water over the cashews. Let them soak for 30 minutes, then drain.
Blend the cashews and the cashew milk briefly, until a grainy micture forms.
Add the nutritional yeast, lemon juice, salt, pepper and onion powder. Blend further until smooth.
Can be stored for up to 2 weeks in the fridge.
