Raw Cashew “Cheese”

I recently made this raw cashew “cheese”. It turned out to be pretty good, but I’d recommend thinking of it more like a dip than a cheese. It was great on crackers and raw veggies! Recipe is from vegweb.com

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups raw cashews
1/4 to 1 cup water
1 to 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 teaspoon salt
2 dashes black pepper
2-3 cups spinach (optional, for spinach dip)

Place the cashews in a medium sized bowl. Fill water 2″ above cashews. Soak for two hours then drain. Place in a blender or food processor with some, not all, of the water and add the rest of the ingredients. Blend until smooth then scrape into a bowl and cover. Set in a cool place for 24 hours. The cheese will set and become firmer by the next day. Then it lasts about a week in the fridge.

Bento 49

I made the “sushi” in this bento by getting romaine lettuce leaves, adding some hummus, radishes, zucchini, and tomato and wrapping it up. The cherry tomatoes were from the farmers market and they were really good too!
