Vegan “Boursin-like” Cheese Recipe


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.
