Make it Monday - Cashew cheese - homemade

Like everyone probably already has guessed. I don't like to cook.

Or if I do, it needs to be fast with only about 15 or 20 minutes in the kitchen.

I have been baking and cooking because I want to be able to tell my clients who do the Leap diet what recipes are good to use and that they really do work. Some have been flops and I have ended up throwing the product away in the trash.

Today I made cheese. Cashew cheese that is.

"Seeing the changes, from when I started the diet to the 60th day totally changed my mind.

Is it worth it? Absolutely.

Is it worth the money? Absolutely.

I was paying out money for medicines, for doctors, and paying out in just not feeling well." Deloris

If you are vegan, or have eliminated dairy, it looks like this one is a winner.

And the other good news is that I was in and out of the kitchen in about 20 minutes. That included clean up time too.

This recipe does require that you soak the cashews. I put them in the water to soak as I made my coffee this morning.

Here is the link for the recipe.

Vegan Cashew Cheese (Stupidly Easy!)

Note: You will have to soak the cashews for at least 1 hour. You can soak them for up to 24 hours. The longer you soak them the more creamy they will become. If you don't want to soak them for 24 hours, soaking them for an hour is totally sufficient.
