This week’s “Meatless Monday” Recipe is Vegan “Cheese” Spread. Another good one from the PBS website. http://www.pbs.org/food/

 
Vegan “Cheese” Spread

Some vegans have a hard time giving up cheese, but this spread tastes like the real thing.

 

PBS

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons miso
1 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons tahini
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon salt (to taste)
1/2 cup water
1 packet (0.15 ounces) agar powder (a.k.a. kanten)
1 tablespoon pistachio nuts, finely minced

 

 

Directions
1 – Put the raw cashews, sun-dried tomatoes and soy milk in a sealable bag, squeeze out the air and refrigerate for at least 1 day (you can skip this step if you are using a Vitamix).
2 – In the bowl of a food processor or blender, add the soaked cashews, tomatoes and remaining soy milk into a food processor along with the nutritional yeast, coconut oil, miso, apple cider vinegar, tahini, mustard, paprika, onion powder, turmeric and salt. Process or blend until smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides a few times. You can add a bit more soy milk if the mixture is too thick and won’t blend, but you want it to be as thick as possible.
3 – Meanwhile put 1/2 cup water and agar powder into a small sauce pan and bring the water to a full boil.
4 – Once the cheese spread is smooth and the agar mixture has boiled, pour the agar mixture into cheese mixture and process to combine.
5 – Put the spread in a ramekin, cover and refrigerate until you are ready to serve it.
6 – When you’re ready to serve, uncover and sprinkle the minced pistachios on top to garnish.

7 Must-Eat Fermented Foods for a Healthy Gut

EatingWell2
Try these 7 probiotic foods for gut health.
The trillions of tiny creatures living in our bodies have been making headlines lately—and for good reasons. These good bacteria—particularly those in our gut—may improve digestion, boost immunity and—according to some preliminary studies—they may even help us get leaner. Research is still emerging on just how important these mighty microbes might be for our health, but the early results are promising. There’s plenty you can do now to encourage their growth. The most effective way is by eating foods packed with probiotics—good bacteria that live in your gut and show up in fermented foods. Add these seven fermented foods to your diet for a healthy dose of probiotics.

 

 
1. Tempeh
Tempeh is made from naturally fermented soybeans. With a slightly nutty flavor, it’s a good source of probiotics—and, because it contains all the essential amino acids, it’s a complete source of vegetarian protein…..

 

 

2. Miso
A fermented paste made from barley, rice or soybeans, miso adds a nice umami flavor to dishes. It’s bold, so a little goes a long way (which is good because it’s also high in sodium)….
