Can't have cow's milk? Try these recipes! In 2007 I gave up dairy for health reasons and began this group. Then, in late 2009, I went vegan---also for health reasons. So even though the group is called The Dairy Free Diva, it's really become the Animal Product Free recipe exchange. Obviously, you can substitute meat into any of the dishes, but I encourage you to give the meat alternatives a try and see for yourself that vegan food is full of flavor and taste and not all the calories and fat! Enjoy the posts and recipes and feel free to add your own delicious dairy-free and meat free concoctions!

Cashew Spread

Posted By girlA on Apr 4, 2011 at 3:54PM

I 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!

Cashew Spread


Ingredients

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

Directions

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.

Transfer to an airtight container and chill for 3-5 hours. Makes about 1-1/2 cups. Enjoy!
