I'm a huge cheese lover. When I was growing up, we'd have a cheese plate a least once a week, and my typical day didn't go by without a slice of some kind of cheddar, mozzarella, or even brie.
But in my early twenties, I started to notice some issues with cheese. I'm not lactose intolerant, but my stomach was proving not to tolerate cheese very well.
Since then, I've only had cheese a few times a year (I know - drastic change!). But that doesn't mean I don't still want something similar!
Enter cashew cheese! While this vegan cheese option doesn't taste like its original counterpart, it does taste AMAZING and can be used in the same way regular cheese can: on a cracker with some fig jam or hot peppers, in a sandwich, sprinkled in salad - whatever you want!
