Title: Cashew Cream Cheese
Post by: bonnie on June 07, 2008, 12:06:54 PM
This one is really good. I am a cream cheese lover and like this better than the real thing.

Cashew Cream Cheeze
Makes about 1 1/4 cups

1 cup raw cashew pieces
3 tablespoons vegan mayonnaise
3 tablespoons rice milk
1 to 2 teaspoons lemon juice, to taste
1/4 teaspoon salt
Combine the cashew pieces in a heatproof bowl with enough boiling water to cover them. Let stand several hours or overnight (if overnight, cover and refrigerate).

Pour the water off of the cashews and combine in a food processor fitted with the metal blade with the remaining ingredients. Stop the processor from time to time to scrape down the bowl. This needs to be processed for quite a while before it becomes creamy, so be patient!

Serve at once or transfer to a storage container and refrigerate until needed.

Add strawberries orblueberries for a sweet variation
