Starting with one basic spread, divide it and quickly make three dramatically different spreads. Think sweet cranberry walnut, savory garlic pepper rosemary and spicy chipotle sun dried tomato! I truly love these recipes. So fast, so easy, so versatile!

    I made 1/3 of the base and made the Garlic Pepper Rosemary Spread, because I had almost all of the ingredients on hand, but it’s just 2 of us in our house. I left out the pine nuts, the only ingredient I didn’t have. I found this recipe delicious (even without the pine nuts) and have recommended it to others with a link to your website.

    I may start experimenting with this base recipe. There are so many possibilities.

    Hello there. I am very new to the “raw” lifestyle (about three months) and I am so happy that I found your site. Your recipe for this spread is my new favorite and I use it with veggies and my own dehydrated pulp crackers. I tried all versions but the keeper for me is the garlic pepper rosemary spread. My first attempt a couple of weeks ago came out great but tonight I didn’t have any pine nuts to throw in…but it came out just as good. Yum! And thank you!

    should the cashews in this recipe be whole versus the pieces youcan find in the bulk section? thanks : )

      Yvonne, it doesn’t matter. Cheers!

    What is Base and Ground Chipotle ? Could you please explain because I get nothing using the dictionary .
    Thank you.

    Did you use dried rosemary or fresh?

    • Susan wrote on July 9, 2012

      Honestly, you can use either. Cheers!

    The nutritional yeast is for flavor. It gives it depth. Probiotics accomplish a completely different thing. They give it a sharper taste.

    How long do you think this cheese would last in the fridge? I am planning on making a batch to use for school lunchbox snacks.

      3-5 days, well covered.

    My husband is allergic to cashews. Can I use macadamia nuts instead?

    • Susan wrote on August 9, 2010

      I haven’t tried it but you sure can…

    this was amazing! i soaked overnight and i only made the savory and chipotle mixture. it made alot more then i had expected, which is awesome because pine nuts are expensive. i am saving the rest of the mix to make some other things on this blog.

    thank you susan, this blog really spiced up my veganism. i am trying to be 50% raw. im about 25% now.
