Almond Cream Cheese With Chives

There are so many different vegan possibilities out there to replace cheese which is absolutely wonderful! One of them is this super creamy almond cream cheese that is easy to alter to your preference. This is a perfect spread to use on bread, in sandwiches or wherever you want to use it. This would also be great to place on a vegan cheese platter with bread and crackers. Instead of chives you can also add dill and other fresh herbs like thyme, basil and oregano. 

This recipe makes a big portion. 

200g // 1 cup almonds, soaked overnight or for about an hour in boiling water  
1 small garlic glove 
1 ½ - 2 tsp. onion powder 
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. lemon juice 
1 tsp. salt

a handful of chives cut into smaller pieces 

Soak the almonds either over night or in boiling water for about an hour. 

Place all the ingredients in the blender or mini chopper except the chives and blend until combined and smooth. 

Place the mixture in a bowl,  add the chives and stir well. 

Allow the spread set in the fridge for a couple of hours.
