Not only is this cashew cheese delicious and easy, it is super versatile. You can put it in a sandwich or use it in lasagna, as a dip and serve carrot sticks or crackers on the side.
Cashews are high in good fat and protein. Fat from plant sources (like nuts, seeds, and avocados) actually help absorb fat soluble vitamins and healthful phytochemicals!
