Cranberry, Nut & Rosemary Vegan Cheese Log

Add this delicious Vegan Cheese Log to your next antipasto platter. It is gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo-friendly, and packed with healthy fats and b12 vitamins.

Ingredients 2 cups organic raw cashews, soaked overnight

2 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes

1 tsp roasted garlic

1/2 tbsp fine Himalayan salt (or to taste)

1/4 tsp organic black pepper, freshly cracked (or to taste)

1/8 tsp organic chilli powder (optional)


To coat

A generous handful of organic walnuts and macadamias

1/4 cup organic dried cranberries

2 sprigs fresh rosemary + extra for garnish


(or try organic almonds, pistachios or pecans, along with organic dried apricots or dried figs and fresh parsley, chives or thyme)


Method

1. Rinse the soaked cashews and drain well. Blend in a food processor or high-powered blender together with nutritional yeast, garlic, salt and pepper until smooth and well combined. This may take a few minutes - simply stop and scrape down the sides of the blender as you go to ensure you are blending everything in.


2. Transfer mixture onto a sheet of baking paper and roll it up to make an even-shaped log. Twist the sides of the paper and tuck them underneath to hold the shape in place. If a smaller log is desired, split the mixture in half and make two separate cheese logs.


3. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours to firm up, or until ready to serve.


4. Meanwhile, finely chop the nuts, dried cranberries and rosemary and spread across a large chopping board.


5. Unwrap the cashew cheese log and roll it in the chopped ingredients to coat evenly. Press toppings into the log to fill any gaps.


6. Serve with seed crackers for a delicious and festive appetiser.
