Cashew Spread

Cashew Spread -- Epicurean VeganI think I might be getting the hang of these nut cheeses. I thought I’d try my hand at making a cashew cheese spread and I love it! It’s perfect as a sandwich condiment, a cracker topper, or lathered on an apple slice. You can play with the flavors, but I like an herb-y kind of spread and I think you’ll like this one, too!

1 C raw cashews
1/4 C lemon juice
1 tsp garlic, minced
1 Tbs olive oil
1 tsp yellow miso
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp dried chives
1/4 C cold water
1/4 tsp salt

Soak the cashews in a bowl of water for about an hour; drain and rinse. In a food processor, grind the cashews until fine. Add the rest of the ingredients and process until smooth.
