Cashew Date Nut Balls

This cheese substitute has the consistency of Parmesan but doesn't taste like Parmesan, and of course doesn't melt like it. But many people think it tastes better. Use on almost anything where you would use Parmesan. Well worth giving it a try! Plus, it's nutrient packed, so use freely. Recipe makes 1 cup. Store in jar in refrigerator.  

Blend together:

3/4 C raw cashews (do not soak)

3 Tbsp nutritional yeast

2 Tbsp golden ground organic flax seed

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp turmeric powder

1/4 tsp sea salt

Cashew "Parmesan" Cheese

Makes approximately 16 - 3/4" balls

6 or 7 Medjool Dates (pits removed)

2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 tsp pure vanilla flavoring

1/3 Cup chopped nuts (cashews or pecans)

1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

Place all items in food processor and spin till clumped together.

Make into 3/4" balls (coat hand with coconut oil so they won't be so sticky)

Roll balls in unsweetened shredded coconut ( if coconut doesn't still well, if you have some pineapple juice from fresh or frozen pineapple use it to coat the balls first. Then the coconut will stick like a charm!)

Chill in refrigerator if desired. Chilling will firm them up and they're extra good chilled.
