Vegan Cashew Spread Recipe is the perfect enhancement to compliment sandwiches and appetizers. Full of protein and flavor. A great staple to have on hand.
I love condiments. It just seems like the perfect addition to a sandwich when each slice of bread is covered with a delicious condiment. I'd like to share with you one of my favorites.
It's a great spread to have on hand. This cashew spread is so versatile that is goes with every vegetable I can think of. It's also all you need as a base to a big fat veggie filled flatbread.
I wanted to call this a sandwich spread because that's what I use it for the most. Usually on flatbread.
But ... google let me know, in it's techie manner, that people don't usually search for the words cashew sandwich spread on the internet they search for the words cashew spread.
I do love it when I search for a type of recipe and one of mine comes up number one or two in google's search engine. That really makes me feel great. It means people are being able to find my recipe and they like it enough to go to my blog.
Another spread that I have that comes up number one in google search is Cashew Cheddar Cheese Spread. I type in cashew cheese and there it is. Wouldn't that be just too cool if I had two different spreads come up as number one and number two? Swoon!
The Vegan Cheddar Cheese Spread really is fantastic. This is what it looks like:
As you can see in one of the photos it also doubles as a dip or spread as an appetizer. Dip in a nice slice of red bell or celery or spread it on little toasts.
Dunk in a pita triangle and it's that easy. There's that much flavor and it's all you need.
I use cashews a lot and when I can I buy them through amazon in bulk. Nuts are expensive but this is definitely the more economical way to go.

There are many companies that sell online and I like amazon because their return policy is so good. Where food is concerned I think that's important. Especially nuts.
That was just a little aside because this is a question that comes up on my facebook page sometimes. Bulk is best if you can swing it.
I've noticed more and more stores selling in those large containers and in bulk! Trader Joe's has a great price too.
