Description

Savory Vegan Cashew Cream Cheese Spread


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 packed cup raw cashews, soaked
  • 1/3 cup room temperature water
  • 1 tbsp Meyer lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp herbes de Provence
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • Generous pinch of ground black pepper

Instructions

Ahead of Time

  1. Measure cashews in a large measuring cup and cover by an inch with boiling water. 
  2. Let sit 3 to 4 hours at room temperature.

Putting it Together

  1. Drain cashews and add to a small food processor bowl. Add 1/3 cup fresh room temperature water, Meyer lemon juice, nutritional yeast, salt, and spices. 
  2. Pulse to break up the cashews then process until smooth and creamy. Stop to scrape down the sides of the bowl regularly. Longer processing results in a silkier finish. Transfer to an airtight glass container and refrigerate until ready to use/serve.

Notes

Refrigerate in an airtight glass container up to 5 days. 

Regular lemon (tangier finish) or a 2:1 combination of freshly squeezed lemon and orange juice (milder finish) can be substituted for a Meyer lemon, if not in season.

Time listed is active prep, not soaking time.
