Cream cheese spread over a warm, toasted bagel or cream cheese on crusty bread with fresh tomatoes are two of the most delicious food combinations. This vegan friendly garlic & chive cream cheese recipes ensures nobody has to miss out on these tasty combos!
Vegan Garlic & Chive Cream Cheese
- 100g cashews (soaked in water overnight)
- 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 3 tbsp water
- 2 tbsp fresh chopped chives
- 2 cloves of garlic
- Salt & Pepper
The night before you want to make the cream cheese, place the cashews in a bowl and cover with cold water. Leave them to soak overnight or for at least 6 hours.
Drain and rinse the cashews then add them to your Ninja Kitchen food processor along with all the other ingredients.
Blend for 30 seconds, then you’ll have to give the ingredients a mix and scrape down the sides. Blend again. Repeat these steps until you’re left with a smooth, creamy mixture – add more water or lemon juice if necessary.
Enjoy on a toasted bagel, spread on crusty bread, stirred into pasta or as a dip with veggie sticks.
Keep in an airtight container and consume within 5 days.
