LOCAL. VEGAN. GLUTEN-FREE.
CREAM CHEEZ SPREAD
AND OOOH SO DELICIOUS!!
VEGAN + GLUTEN FREE
To make this delicious cheez, I start by soaking raw cashews for 8-12 hours. After soaking, they are thoroughly rinsed before placing them into a high speed blender with filtered water and active cultures.
After this step, the cream is allowed to culture in a glass bowl for 18-24 hours at room temperature and the another 24 hours in the refrigerator. Then the magic begins.
I do not add herbs, spices, or oils to make this product taste like cheese. Because of the active cultures and culturing process, this product has real cheese flavor which I believe has a superior taste to store bought cream cheese.
