Vegan “Boursin-like” Cheese RecipePosted: August 5, 2012
Just made my own version of “Boursin” cheese. Boursin® is a French spreadable cheese I grew up with, and now being a vegan, missed. It turned out delicious. Yet again, my magic bullet did the trick. This super easy “cheese” would be great with toast, crackers, vegetables, or anything you would like!
Soak ½ cup of raw cashews overnight
When you’re ready to whip up the cheese, drain and rinse the cashews and toss them into a food processor with:
8 oz organic silken tofu
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 clove of garlic
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon of nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon of your choice of dried herbs (I reached for my usual—Herbes de Provence)
2 tablespoons vegan margarine (like Earth Balance)
Allow it to firm up for a couple of hours in the fridge or overnight.
