Prep ahead Picnic

VeganMoFo-beetrootIf you’re going for a picnic or a road trip, what do you pack? What do you make?

Cheese and crackers are a great snack for a picnic or a road trip. This recipe is adapted from the Vegan Bible by Marie Laforêt, lovely inventive recipes and biblebeautiful photographs as well as some useful general information. It’s the only bible I’m likely to read!

This rich tempeh cheese has a good, deep flavour. Nice with crackers or in a salad, you definitely could take it on a road trip!

  • 50g cashew nuts, soaked overnight in water
  • 100g plain tempeh
  • 50ml water
  • 2 tbsp white miso
  • 1 tbsp yeast
  • 1 tbsp cashew or almond butter
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • a pinch of paprika (optional)
  • Freshly ground white pepper

Drain the cashews and blend with all the other ingredients until smooth. Place in an 8cm ring mould or if you don’t have one, pour into 4 or 5 well-oiled cups of a muffin tin. Bake for 20 mins at 180°C.
