You miss cheese? Try this!

By Robyn Openshaw, MSW | Jan 09, 2013

images-81Pam Opdyke is a GreenSmoothieGirl reader who brought 20 people with her, from 2 hours away, to my Sacramento lecture in April. She passionately blogs about health and nutrition topics for friends and family. She shared this “cheeze” recipe that she said is wonderful  on steamed veggies, baked potatoes, in veggie lasagna, on sandwiches, or a dip with veggies or chips / crackers / pita triangles.

Favorite Easy Cheeze

1/3  C cashews *
1/3 C sunflower seeds *
1/4  red onion
2-3 Tbsp red bell pepper
2 cloves garlic  (adjust to taste)
1 scant Tbsp Bragg’s Amino Acids or Nama Shoyu
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/2 C or less water – How you’re using it will determine how much water to use.  Use less to make a thick cheeze.

Blend all ingredients in a  blender or food processor till as smooth as you want it.  Scrape sides a few times between blending.    Keeps in fridge about a week, if it lasts that long!  Enjoy your new favorite, healthy cheeze!

*May use all cashews, or all sunflower seeds if desired. I like them mixed.

    I made this recipe last night and although I wouldn’t call it a substitute for cheese, it is a very good dip for veggies and the other uses she mentioned. Too much onion and garlic taste to be considered a cheese substitute.
