The absolute BEST vegan cream cheese loaded with veggies. Made from cashews, so it’s both dairy and soy free!
Veggie cream cheese is my favorite on bagels- I love ones that are extra loaded with all the veg, so that’s what I did for this recipe. Plus, you can totally play around with this and add whatever veggies you want! This recipe is packed with crunchy carrots, red onion, and fresh green onion.You can add jalapeños for spice, or cucumbers for a fresh touch.
I’m obsessed with this cream cheese on bagels, sourdough toast, or english muffins with an egg on top (my personal fave)! I love having a batch of this in the fridge for the week for delicious breakfasts…makes you way more excited to get out of bed ya know? Pro tip: serve this up with some extra veggies to increase the nutrient-density and fiber content of the meal.
I feel like cashews can do no wrong. They make the best base for creamy vegan sauces, frostings, and savory spreads. Just remember to soak yours the night before! Then this cream cheese just takes a quick blend and you’re set to add your veggies!
If you’re dairy free or vegan and missing your cream cheese- this is the recipe to try! It’s simple, healthy, and so SO delicious. Enjoy!!
Rinse and strain the soaked cashews. Add cashews, garlic, oil, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, salt, and nutritional yeast (optional) to a high speed blender. Blend until completely smooth- this may take a couple minutes and you will have to scrape down the sides occasionally.
Stir in veggies with a spatula or spoon. You can add any amount and types of veggies that you like! Store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
This is actually amazing and I love making a batch of this for the week and having it on an english muffin every morning. I absolutely love it and makes it easy to get in some extra veggies!
You’re the sweetest, thank you Ashley!! I love having this in my fridge!!
I was just thinking about where to get cashew cream cheese today and looked what I stumbled upon! Don’t love most store bought ingredient lists. SO excited to try this awesome recipe. Love your blog!
Love this recipe! It’s so versatile with the veggies you can add! I just made a batch this morning and mixed in some chopped artichoke hearts and red bell pepper. It was perfect on toasted sourdough dough topped with arugula and red pepper flake. ????????
Hi! How long does a batch of this stay good for?
7 days! If you use cucumbers, I would try to use it up within 5 days!
