Creamy Vegan Dipping Cheese

A Healthy Alternative to Dairy Cheese…Today I made my own version of Creamy Vegan Dipping Cheese. You can create your base and then garnish it with any seasoning or herbs you love!! I fell in love with Vegan Cheese a few months ago when I had a sampling at a local Herb Shop’s fermented food class!  Let this recipe serve as the base for the endless flavors available for you to try!!  It is the easiest thing to make once you pre-soak your Raw Cashews.  I like to soak my Raw Cashews at least 12 – 24 hours to ensure a creamy consistency. After soaking the cashews I drop everything into my Vitamix and blend everything together. Pour into a dish, cover and let the cheese thicken and chill!  While you are waiting for your cheese to thicken and chill, cut up your favorite veggies and you are ready for the best dipping experience.  DELICIOUS!!!  Get out calendar so you can plan to make this amazing recipe…
2 cups of Raw Cashews
2 Fresh Lemons Squeezed
2 Cloves Fresh Garlic
1/4 cup Spring Water
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1/2 Teaspoon – Sea Salt (Add more to Taste)
Trader Joes Smoke Grinder (optional)
Trader Joes Chile Lime (optional)
Soak Raw Cashews in a bowl covered with spring water for 12- 24 hours – this creates a very creamy consistency for your Creamy Vegan Dipping Cheese when blending. I use the Vitamix but any blender will do.

Place all of the ingredients into the blender, start the blender on medium and increase to high until you have a creamy consistency!! Pour your mixture into a glass dish, cover, let thicken and chill for a few hours! I loved my Creamy Vegan Dipping Cheese with slices of cucumber, cherry tomatoes and even with carrots. Oh, by the way this Creamy Vegan Dipping Cheese is loaded with lots of Vitamin B derived from the Braggs Nutritional Yeast. In my personal opinion all of Braggs products are amazing!!

Garnish with Dill or Sundried Tomatoes for added Yumminess!! I love mine garnished with Trader Joes Smoke and Trader Joes Chile Lime Seasoning!
