Wine and Herb Cheese Spread

This is another take on my favorite cashew cheese. While I love some of the fancy vegan cheese recipes people are coming up with, I usually don't want to spend days making them. This simple version goes together almost instantly, and tastes great on everything from crackers to pizza.

Wine and Herb Cheese Spread
makes about 1 cup

1 cup raw cashews, soaked in water about 20 minutes
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1/2-1 tsp salt
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dry mustard
2 T herbs de provence
1 T chia seeds
1 T yellow miso paste
1/4 cup white wine
1/2 cup water

Drain and rinse the cashews, and place in a food processor with all other ingredients, except water. Blend on high speed, adding the water gradually, until smooth.
