This super easy vegan cheez is show stopping! Slight adaptations made to @onegreenplanet's aquafina mozzarella, this spreadable cheese has a flavor reminiscent of a sharp cheddar. Using soaked cashews as the recipe base, this cheez holds up surprisingly well to baking and is quite delicious sliced on a sammie or spread on bruschetta. Try it once and you will soon find that this vegan cheese will become a new staple in your fridge!
