SLICEABLE GARLIC AND HERB CASHEW CHEESE {vegan, gluten free}

This is a very rare savoury recipe from me! If you’re looking for a dairy-free, vegan alternative to satisfy that cheesy craving – you’ve gotta try this! I often make cashew cheese as a dip or sauce to have with meals, but this recipe is sliceable and absolutely perfect for a cheeseboard. The trick is agar-agar powder – I got mine pretty cheap off Amazon! It can be made in under half an hour (aside from setting time) and is so so easy to make. Go go go!

I absolutely love having buckwheat as a change from oats for breakfast. Completely gluten free and high in protein, fibre, manganese, magnesium and phosphorus; buckwheat really is the perfect way to start your day! And easier than you thought to prepare. The soaking overnight is important not only to aid digestion, but it also drastically cuts down on the amount of cooking time in the morning as it softens the buckwheat groats!
