This ‘cashew cream cheese’ is delicious as a dip eaten with veggies, diluted with water and used as cheesy sauce over zucchini noodles or pasta, or loosened further with water to be used as a salad dressing. Made from raw nuts, this recipe does do not contain the saturated fat or cholesterol found in dairy cheese. Cashews are a source of protein, anti-inflammatory monounsaturated fat and omega fatty acids, fiber, calcium, magnesium, and manganese. In fact, 100 grams of raw cashews has 18 grams of protein, 37% RDA iron and 3 grams of fiber and zero cholesterol, while ricotta cheese (whole milk) only has 11 grams of protein, 2% RDA iron, 125 mg of cholesterol, and zero fiber.
