How could I forget that we need recipes for Superbowl parties? Oh, yeah! I’ll be working when it is on. Never mind! Here are some recipes that will keep you raw and happy while you watch the Superbowl. These are previously posted recipes – I’m just saving you all the clicking through. This is to get you started.
CASHEW CHEDDAR CHEEZE
1 C raw cashews, soaked 1 – 2 hrs., and drained
1/3 lg orange (or red) bell pepper
Juice of 1 lemon
1 t onion powder
1/2 t sea salt
1 T chili seasoning, or to taste (optional)
Water to just cover cashews
- Combine all ingredients in the VitaMix (or a high-speed blender) and process until smooth.
- Refrigerate for up to 1 week.
Use as a spread on sandwiches, crackers, or chips, as a dip for crudites, as a sauce for raw pates or burgers, or as a salad dressing.
SMOKED JALAPENO CHEEZE
2 C cashews
2 jalapenos (or to taste)
1/4 – 1/2 C water (or rejuvelac)
1 t sea salt
Put all ingredients in VitaMix and process to a smooth consistency.
Tonight, I added two large cloves of garlic to the blender mix before processing.
I have made this recipe before, as is, and totally enjoyed it added to sandwich combos.
Two weeks ago, I made it with probiotics, and aged it for 24 hours (wow!)
I added 1 T of probiotic powder to the mix and hung it in cheesecloth over a bowl, to let it age for 24 hours.
You can use this as a dip or as a stuffing/topping for red or orange bell pepper slices.
CASHEW/KALE CHEEZE ON TOMATO SLICES
1 large tomato, sliced thickly
1 C cashews, soaked and rinsed
2 C kale, chopped fine
2 – 3 cloves garlic, chopped
1/4 C onion, chopped
1/4 C extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt and pepper to taste
- In the food processor, process all ingredients, except tomato, to a fine consistency.
- Sprinkle sea salt and black pepper over tomato slices.
- Spread kale/cashew cheeze thickly onto tomato slices.
You could also use this as a dip for chips and crackers, or as a topping/stuffing for red bell pepper slices.
