Vegan Cheddar Cheese Ball

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups raw cashews, soaked in water overnight
  • 2 tablespoon sun dried tomatoes, soaked with cashews
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast (2 TBSP = roughly 9 grams of protein)
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon red miso (good for gut bacteria)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • ½ cup shredded almond

Instructions:

Step 1: Pour soaking water from cashews and sun dried tomatoes and rinse with fresh water, drain well.
Step 2: Process cashews and sun dried tomatoes in blender and pulse until they start to form a paste, scraping down the sides as necessary.
Step 3: Add all of the seasonings and pulse until thoroughly combined.
Step 4: Add the coconut oil. Blend or process until the mixture is completely smooth, scraping down the sides occasionally. This process should take up to 10 minutes in a power blender.
Step 5: Scrape the soft cheese into a container.
Step 6: Cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours, until firm. Scrape the cheese out of the container and place onto a clean surface. With your hands, form the cheese into a ball and roll in slice raw sliced almonds , dill or any other herbs of your choice and voila.
