Brunch is my favorite meal of the day. That in between food from breakfast and lunch combined is so good. And I love to make nice spreads so everyone can dig in and make their own sandwich. I created a cashew cream cheese with soaked cashew nuts, garlic, lemon zest and spring onions. Really easy to make and so good! Let me show you how to make it.

Yield: 4 witches

Ingredients for the cream cheese:

🐍 250 grams of soaked cashew nuts 

🐍 zest and juice of one lemon

🐍 4 cloves of garlic

🐍 1 tsp dried oregano and thyme 

🐍 60 ml oat or soy cream

🐍 2 spring onions 

🐍 salt and pepper to taste 

🐍 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 

🐍 2 tbsp nutritional yeast

To serve: four freshly baked Artisan buns, avocado, rocket, olives, pumpkin seeds and roasted tomatoes 

Magical method:

  1. Soak your cashew nuts overnight in cold water. 
  2. After a night of soaking drain and rinse them once and add to your food processor or high speed blender.
  3. Add all the other ingredients to the mix and blend until smooth and creamy. Just like cream cheese. Always have a taste if it needs more lemon, spices or garlic. 
  4. Meanwhile preheat your oven to 200 C. Roast cherry tomatoes with a shot of olive oil + salt and pepper. Roast for 13-15 minutes.
  5. When you want to serve the cream cheese, slice the spring onions and stir through. Garnish with pumpkin seeds and extra spring onions. 

Serve with your favorite juice. I had an orange and mango juice infused with fennel seeds

Enjoy the magic
