June 12, 2014

A simple reworking of an Italian antipasto (starter) that's raw, dairy-free and oh so tasty!


live caprese

*3 large heirloom tomatoes

*8 large basil leaves chopped

*oilve oil (high quality is best...your tastebuds will thank you!)

*1 cup cashew "cheese" (see recipe below)


*thinly slice tomatoes and place on large plate. place small a dollop of "cheese" in middle of tomato. sprinkle with chopped basil. drizzle with olive oil. 


***feel free to adjust recipe according to the desired quantity.  you may want more "cheese" on each tomato for example.


cashew "cheese"

*1 cup soaked and rinsed cashews

*1/4 tsp. sea salt

*1 Tbs. lemon juice

*2 Tbs. water


*place all ingredients in blender and blend on low, increasing the speed as things begin to move.  add more water as needed, only a little at a time so that the "cheese" does not become too fluid.  blend until thick and smooth.
