Sun dried Tomato Cashew Cheese Spread



Once again, in the interest of simplifying your life, we have a raw food recipe that can be used more than one way. You can start with the base, which can be eaten as it is, or get creative and add it to other ingredients to make the rawchoes. I used smoked sun dried tomatoes to give it a little more depth.

    Fabulous spread!…sprinkled some smoked paprika to replace the smokiness of the tomatoes…could have eaten it right out of the processor bowl 😛

    Is it okay to dehydrate in the oven on a temp right above warm?

    Bare with me here I’m new to raw eating…isn’t anything heated over 115 degrees not considered raw? I noticed your chip recipe instructions say to dehydrate the corn paste at 145 degrees for an hour. Thanks!

      The higher temperature in the beginning allows for faster dehydration, and safer dehydration. The raw status of the food is never compromised because the temperature of the food never goes above 115, it is just releasing water in that first part of dehydration and stays quite cool. There are quite a few articles on the site about dehydration. You can use the search function to read more about it. Cheers!

    Bri, “sweet corn” is a veggie rather than a grain. Despite its seeming ubiquity it accounts for less than 2/10th of 1 percent of all corn grown. As a fresh veggie it has a mild alkaline quality. No worries. Of course fresh will almost always be better than frozen, even flash frozen (and that also depends on the company that packages it as to whether it’s been par-boiled or not before freezing so it doesn’t hurt to ask — which also raises awareness). I’d also recommend organic if at all possible. 🙂

      Actually, sweet corn is still classified as a grain but we eat it as a vegetable. 🙂

    According to most alkaline/acidic pH charts, corn and any corn products are deemed acidic. Is that true? I guess its not bad since all your ingredients are raw, i just like to keep everything as alkaline as possible. What do you think? Anyway, the recipe sounds delicious!
