Scallion & Dill Herbed Cheese Ball

This recipe is fairly basic and flexible. You should be able to easily adjust the herbs or switch them out to suit your tastes.  It requires no time for fermentation; but rather, it needs only a couple hours to set up and allow flavors to fuse together and blend throughout the cheese.

Ingredients

1 cup Cashews, soaked 2 hours or more and drained

1½ tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Pure Coconut Oil

⅛ cup Lemon Juice

¼ tsp Fine Sea Salt

½-1 tsp Dill, reserved

½-1 tbsp Finely Chopped Green Onions, reserved

Black or White Pepper, if/as desired

Instructions

Process all ingredients except dill and green onions until smooth and creamy in a food processor or high speed blender such as a Vitamix.  Once mixture is smooth, add dill and process until well combined.

Place ring mold on a plate or cover a small bowl in saran. Coat the bottom of your mold in green onions.

Press cheese mixture into mold.

Gently remove from mold and chill uncovered on a plate for 2 hours or more.  When ready to enjoy, serve over your favorite savory cracker, whether a simple raw flax cracker or other cracker of choice.
