Cheese used to be one of the only foods that I would eat almost every single day.
I remember once saying that I could never go vegan because of my love of cheese.
Then I saw that the production of cheese caused pain and suffering to animals all around the world; I had to stop.
It doesn’t matter how much you think you ‘love’ something, when it comes to other’s suffering because of it then there is no choice other than to stop contributing to that suffering – whether I think I love it or no.
Being vegan means you taste so many other foods that you never thought you’d ever try, or had ever even considered eating before. My sense’s are heightened immensely since making this change, but also knowing that what goes into my body doesn’t have to harm another living thing. Ever. Well that feeling is like nothing else.
So hereby lies my new ‘cheese’ creation made from cashew nuts! Thanks to the ‘Clean Food Dirty Girl’ blog, I found a very easy recipe with only a few simple ingredients
What you’ll need:
130 g of cashews soaked in 709 ml of water for at least an hour
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 turns fresh black pepper
1/4 cup water
What you’ll need to do:
This is soooo simple!
Soak, drain and rinse cashews. Then place them into a food processor, along with lemon juice, salt and black pepper. Then pulse for about 1 minute to combine ingredients. You’ll then need to add water and process until completely smooth, about 2 -4 minutes.
That is it!
I know so simple right!
Tell me what you think…..i adore it 🙂
