Do you have any idea what pub cheese is? No, me neither. But when I saw this post on Scissors and Spice (well, okay, and this one sealed the deal), I knew I had to make it.
I wouldn't say I actually miss cheese, although, like with many vegans, it was my last item to give up, but I do enjoy vegan cheese every once in a while and when I do, I'd much rather make my own than buy the expensive store-made kinds.
Today for lunch, I schmeared it into a pita with sprouts, red onion, cucumber, and tomatoes.
It was pretty tasty! I like that it is cashew-based, obviously, because cashews are amazing but I also had a lot of fun roasting the red pepper. The directions call for roasting it under the broiler, but I didn't feel like turning the oven on, so I forked it and held it over a flame until it charred. Just like camping! Kinda.
I'm not quite as classy as Bianca, who made this for part of her (big gay) wine and cheese birthday party, but I got down with snacking on it with some crackers and pumpkin:
It was nice and creamy and salty. As befitting a pub, I wished I had a beer to enjoy it with.
Any favorite vegan cheeses, either store bought or homemade?
