Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Soak cashews (and sun-dried tomatoes if not soft) in hot water for about 10 minutes. 

  2. Add all ingredients except sliced almonds to food processor and process until smooth (about 5 minutes). 

  3. Take saran wrap and wrap cheese mixture into a ball. 

  4. Put ball into the refrigerator and refrigerate for about 20-30 minutes until hardened enough to keep its shape. 

  5. Unwrap ball and roll it in almonds. 

  6. Put ball into a sealed container and place back into the refrigerator for a few hours to fully harden.

  7. Because coconut oil is solid below 76 degrees, it's best to take the cheese out of the fridge about a half hour to an hour before serving so that the cheese is more spreadable. If you're in a rush, you can microwave the ball on low for about 20-30 seconds. 

  8. The cheese will last up to 7 days in the fridge.
