What are the ingredients in a Vegan Cheese Ball?
Store bought vegan cream cheese ( whatever you like, Daiya, Kite hill, etc..)
Green onions or chives
Dried cranberries or dried cherries
How long will a vegan cheese ball last in the refrigerator?
The cheese ball will stay firm for 2-3 hours at room temperature and will last in the fridge for 4-5 days.
How do you make a Vegan Cheese Ball?
Add the cashews to a small pot, cover with water and boil for 10 minutes, drain and set aside to cool (couple minutes) then add to the food processor with the vegan cream cheese, coconut milk, garlic salt, pepper, granulated onion and granulated garlic. Process until smooth. Scraping down the sides a few times. This will take a few minutes. (You want it really smooth)
Now add the cheese mixture to a medium bowl and stir in the chopped green onions.
Place a piece of plastic wrap over a small bowl or on your counter. With a spatula scoop out the cheese mixture onto the centre of the plastic wrap. Gather up the corners of the plastic wrap and gently twist the top. So it roughly forms a ball (Don’t worry once it hardens you can shape it into a more uniform ball).
Place the cheese ball in the bowl cover with more plastic wrap and freeze for one hour or refrigerate for 4-6 hours or overnight to let the flavours develop even more.
While the cheese ball is chilling mix the pecans, dried cranberries and parsley together pour onto a plate or a shallow bowl.
When you are ready to serve unwrap the cheese ball form into a better shape if necessary. (It won’t be super firm) Then roll in the chopped pecans and cranberry mix.
Serve with a sliced baguette and/or crackers (Raincoast Crisps are delicious!) and veggies like carrots, celery and cucumbers. Enjoy! Full recipe ingredients and instructions see recipe card below.
