Vegan herb cheese - spreadable and easy to make

  • SHARE
I made this vegan cheese recipe because a friend of mine was asking me for it so I came up with something that's easy to make with only a few ingredients. The cheese base is made from cashews and I avoided starch and reduced the amount of oil as well.

In a lot of the cheeses you get in supermarkets you have tons of oil and starch, but hardly any protein. But this spreadable vegan herb cheese has all the nutrients from cashews nuts and a lot of protein.

Vegan herb cheese - spreadable and easy to make


Add some cracked pepper on top and enjoy on bread or oat cakes. I also added some sliced grapes on top as well. The sweet and savoury flavour worked really well with this vegan herb cheese.

It's super easy to spread. Initially I wanted to make a dense cheese, but I really liked the consistency of this one, it's like a mix between cream cheese and cheddar, kinda right in the middle.



INGREDIENTS:


Spreadable cheese ingredients:

  • 120g cashew nuts
  • 240ml water
  • 4 tbsp nutritional yeast (nooch)
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 5g agar powder
  • Mixed herbs

Optional ingredients:

  • Cracked black pepper
  • Grapes
  • Oatcakes

METHOD:


Add all cheese ingredients into a blender apart from the mixed herbs. Blend until you get a smooth texture (my smoothie blender works best for that).


Then pour the mixture into a pan, add some mixed herbs, heat up and cook for 3 minutes while stirring continuously.


Now transfer the mixture into a tupperware dish, even it out and then let chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes until it has cooled down completely and set.


Then take out of the fridge and upend the cheese.

Spread on bread or oat cakes. I also added some grapes on top of my oat cakes, it was really delicious!

Enjoy!






Enjoy!

This gravy is super easy to make, meat-free, dairy-free and gluten-free and is a great accompaniment to vegan roast dinner, roast poatoes, fried smoked tofu or any veggies. It tastes amazing, a bit similar to peppercorn sauce and can be done in under 10 minutes.

Aduki bean and sun-dried tomato hummus

I am a total hummus sapiens and have hummus almost every day. The UK has a shortage of hummus due to production problems of the supplier of the main supermarket. So I thought I make my own special edition hummus with aduki beans (also called adzuki) and sun-dried tomatoes and it tasted amazing!

Vegan dips: Greek tzatziki and butterbean hummus

Both of these recipes actually happened by accident. A was at a friend's place and we got hungry so I looked into her cupboards and checked out what we could have. And all of a sudden we ended up with vegan tzatziki and butterbean hummus. Perfect for our little party.
