The world of vegan cheeses has exploded over the past few years. Now supermarket shelves are filled with vegan cheeses of all varieties, from soft, spreadable cheeses, to hard, sharp cheeses, slices, and everything in between! All of them are equally delicious, and many people can’t even tell the difference between dairy cheese and vegan cheese anymore. There is one drawback though, the price. Although often times they are with the money, it can be a great option to make your own vegan cashew cheese and save some money! Since many people say one of the biggest challenges of going vegan is giving up cheese, we thought it would be fun to share with you two easy vegan cheese ideas you can make in just minutes (as long as your cashews are soaked!)! First is this easy herbed cheese spread made with cashews and fresh herbs. Feel free to add different herbs as you see fit, but for this recipe, I used dill and chives because they are two of my absolute favorites. This is cashew cheese spread pairs perfectly with veggies or on crackers, can also be used in wraps, sandwiches, pasta– you name it. The versatility of this recipe is what makes it so special. Jasmine’s stretchy vegan mozzarella cheese recipe is coming to the blog very soon, so keep an eye out for it!
