Cashew Cheese

When you feel like having something delicious, something that resembles comfort food, you go for NUTS. Raw nuts are not only full of nutrients but they are also delicious. One tablespoon of this nut spread will keep you full for longer, no questions asked.

So why do we want to soak the nuts first? Because when the nuts are soaked in purified water, enzyme inhibitors are released making your nuts more digestion friendly. Raw nuts are harder to digest so if you can soak them before eating you will help your digestive system stay happy.

I also wanted this recipe to be quick and easy as I am all for simple ingredients and not a big production in the kitchen, who else is with me on this?

In this recipe I used cashews because they are my favourite. Cashews blend really well and may be used in sweet as well as savoury recipes. Nuts are also high in vitamins and minerals, fibre, health fats, and a good dose of protein. I mean, is anyone else excited about this NUT spread?
