It’s day 8 of our 30 day raw vegan challenge! Wow, I can’t believe it’s been over a week already. We called this a challenge before we started because we had the perception this would be difficult. However, it has been extremely easy for both of us. The food we have been making has had amazing flavor and it is pretty healthy too! We wanted to make a raw lasagna but obviously we needed to develop this raw vegan cashew ricotta cheese recipe first. This recipe is based on our vegan tofu ricotta cheese recipe (click here to view recipe). We used cashews instead of tofu and made sure to leave anything out that might not be raw. It turned out to be so delicious we were dipping raw carrot sticks and our raw vegan flax seed crackers in it too! It is very quick and easy to make if you have a high powered blender like a Vitamix.
It’s Super Bowl time so we wanted to post some ideas for vegan Super Bowl Snacks!

This is another very simple vegan cheese recipe! We absolutely love this dip, especially with organic corn chips! It is a great way to increase your raw spinach intake as well! In a powerful blender (we used a Vitamix; for more information in North America click here or in Europe click here) add:
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 6 Tablespoons of nutritional yeast
- 1/4 cup raw almonds
- 3/4 cup raw cashews
- 1/4 to 1/2 leaf of fresh spinach (add more if you really love spinach)
Blend until smooth or almost completely smooth. Enjoy this raw spinach vegan cheese as a spread or dip with your favorite chips, crackers or vegetables!
