Not Cheese

I've been experimenting. With what, you ask?

Well, armed with bags and bags of raw cashews, I'm on a mission to make vegan cheese. One that will melt, caramelize and still taste amazing. This was experiment number two and it was reaaally tasty. Almost to the point where I admitted (to myself, and now you) that I could probably live without real cheese. There I said it.


Everything went into a blender and then it was cooked and from there I allowed it to chill. Following that I sliced a baguette, slathered on some cheese-less basil pesto and topped it off with faux cheese slices. I then toasted the shit out of it, or until the 'cheese' got kind of melt-y/brown and ate it. 

 I proceeded to repeat this proccess another four times until I came to realize that I should probably save some for the legit vegan around here, Rich.

Hi, I'm Janetta from Toronto. I cook, bake and make big messes. I photograph nearly everything and those photos will most likely end up being posted here. I've got a little black cat named Tank, who's super cute and a little bit nosy. You'll see a lot of photos of her too!
