Creamy Cashew and Chive Cheese for a Festive Vegan Cheese Platter

Carlos's grandmother always got her holiday parties started by serving a HUGE cheese ball and having everybody dig in. There's something about that timeless combination of cheese and crackers and cheese and bread that is so simple yet festive, not to mention the fact that it's the easiest party appetizer because you can make it ahead of time, serve it and forget it!

Yes... I said make it. 

We're going to make vegan cheese at home!

One of my favorite cheeses in my pre-vegan days used to be goat cheese, mostly because I loved the texture of it. It held its shape, but it was also creamy and stuck to the roof of your mouth giving you that blissful decadent feeling. The cashew cheese I'm teaching you how to make today is very similar. It holds its shape since we're using agar-agar (a vegetarian gelatin you can find at any supermarket), but it's marvelously creamy and perfect on a cracker. We're also decorating it so it looks super festive, and turning the whole thing into a yummy vegan holiday cheese platter!

NEW VIDEOS FOR MEMBERS!: A BRAND NEW SECTION IN YOUR BROWNBLE MEMBER PAGE! PLUS NEW GOODIES, CHEESE PUFFS, ROASTED VEGETABLES WITH ROSEMARY AND MORE

There's something about the Holidays that makes me run on all cylinders. This is why I'm so excited to announce that just in time for Christmas, we're not only showering you with the videos for the goodies below (and another one coming tomorrow!), but we've actually created a brand new section in your members only area! We've titled it "Let's chat...", and it will be the place for you and I to sit down and talk for a bit. No kitchen, no ingredients, just a quiet time with me where you can get answers to all your questions, where we talk about healthy eating and living, how to balance the naughty and nice, where I help you lose your fear of the kitchen and take you step by step through making more vegan choices that fill your heart and your palate with joy.

We'll talk about entertaining, kitchen gadgets, ingredients, how to get your kitchen and your life organized, since in my experience all these things have to do with your eating habits and your physical and mental health. We'll talk about making more healthy choices and how to feel our best, and I help you become bff's with food and cooking again. It's basically a place for you and me to tackle the topics that matter to you, and that you need help or support with, no matter where you are along the vegan path (even if you're no where near it!).

NEW VIDEO FOR MEMBERS! CRISPY POTATO LATKES WITH APPLESAUCE, SOUR CREAM AND CHIVES

We're getting ready for the Holidays and filming so many yummy recipes for you it was hard to decide what we should get the party started with! This week we posted our PB & J Dot cookie recipe, and today we have these yummies for all our Brownble members! 

These crispy potato latkes are so typical around the holidays, but we tend to have them year round due to the fact that they're beyond scrumptious! I like to serve them topped with non-dairy sour cream, some minced chives, and of course, a little bowl of applesauce for dipping as is tradition.
