Soy-Free Vegan Cream Cheese

Soy-Free Vegan Cream Cheese

One of my favorite booths at the Sunday morning Farmer’s Market in Tucson is a booth of cheeses and butter. The ladies who run the booth are whizzes at mixing delicious cheese and butter flavor concoctions. However, though I love their products, I don’t really have the money to buy them. At least not on a regular basis. Not with student loans on my back like an evil monkey. So I decided to recreate one of my favorite flavors at home…and VEGAN. The desire to make vegan cream cheese is really the fault of that temptress Leanne over at Healthful Pursuit. She posted an amazing recipe for Soy-Free Vegan Cream Cheese with great step-by-step photos that make the process absolutely foolproof. I made the recipe below using her recipe for vegan cream cheese, which makes 1 cup. So if you want to use regular cream cheese sub in 1 cup’s worth. Otherwise, head over to Leanne’s blog and see what you have to do (basically nothing!) to make delicious creamy vegan cream cheese. Eat this with thin slices of crusty bread or with crackers.
