Lately I’ve been having some fun making cheeses and experimenting with different pairings. The options with cashew cheese are endless, so feel free to try out other herbs to see what you like.
This cheese has a mild cheddar flavor with a strong hint of onion. It is fabulous with cherry tomatoes, carrots, broccoli, or any raw vegetable. It’s also tasty on crackers or bread.
White Cheddar-Onion Cheese Ball
2 TBSP nutritional yeast (this is what gives it the cheddar taste)
2 tsp onion flakes (or 1/2 tsp onion powder)
pinch of nutmeg
1/2 tsp sea salt
3 TBSP lemon juice
Cracked black pepper
Blend all of the cheese ingredients in a blender of food processor until smooth.
Place mixture into a tupperware container and cover over night in refrigerator.
Scoop the cheese out onto a plate with onion flakes and crusted peppercorn. Cover the cheese with the onion flakes and pepper as you mold it into a ball.
Once your cheese has been covered and molded into a ball, place the plate and cheese into the freezer for approximately 10 minutes to firm up. Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
