This soft cashew cheese is tangy, creamy, and delicious and will impress all your dinner guests!
Drain and rinse cashews from the soaking water and add to a high-powered blender along with lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, nutritional yeast, sea salt, ground black pepper, garlic powder, oregano, parsley, and basil.
Blend this mixture until smooth. It will take some working with the blenders baton to push the mixture into the blade while the blender is running, or by stopping the blender to push excess mixture down the sides and mix it around before running the blender again. If you do this it will get smooth eventually!
When you’re ready to serve, remove the cheese from the plastic wrap and it should be solid enough to handle and reshape gently with your hands if there’s any misshapen parts. Place it on your serving platter and gently press roughly chopped dried cranberries around the outside of the cheese log. Sprinkle with a little more basil and serve immediately!
