Herbed Vegan Chevre

It can be nice to put out a cheese plate around the holidays, and if you don’t eat dairy you can still do so, thanks to all of the plant based cheeses available now, and being able to make your own!  I like this vegan chevre because it is delicious, easy to make and festive!  I like it served alongside crackers, with fruit or even crumbled over salads if you have leftovers!

  1. In a high speed blender combine the soaked cashews, filtered water, lemon juice, salt and coconut butter and blend until smooth.
  2. Add the herbs and cranberries, and pulse in the blender at a low speed until chopped (alternatively, chop by hand and stir it in).
  3. Pour into a bowl, place in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes until it is easier to work with, then scrape onto a piece of plastic wrap, and shape into a log while wrapping tightly.
  4. Place in the freezer for about 15 minutes until more firm (you want it to hold shape, but still stick to the herbs). Place the rosemary and sage for coating on a plate, then roll the log in the herbs.
  5. Place in the refrigerator until firm, a few hours. Enjoy!

Chevre keeps wrapped in the refrigerator for 1 week.
