I wanted a sweet kind of cheese spread and I thought of cranberries. And I knew I wanted fresh herbs in it as well. I threw some things together in a blender, and BLAM! What can cashews not do? How can you mess it up? I probably will eventually…
Cranberry Herb Cashew Spread
- 1 1/2 cups raw cashews, soaked 4 hours, drained and rinsed
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 1/2 tbsp water
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp chives, fresh
- 1/4 tsp thyme, fresh
- 1/2 cup + 1/4 c dried cranberries, divided
- Place cashews, coconut oil, lemon juice, water, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, chives, thyme, and 1/4 cup cranberries in a high powered blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Add a tsp of water at a time if you need to add liquid.
- Place in a tuperware container and cool in fridge 2-4 hours if you want to form it into a ball, otherwise you can use immediately as a dip or spread.
