Vegan Cashew Cheese Sprinkles

Vegan Cashew Cheese Sprinkles

Inspiration

This recipe is inspired by some Goat cheese sprinkles that I recently had on my light meal with SAS airlines. These sprinkles were nothing like I’ve ever seen, crispy, couscous-like cheese? It made the salad exquisite. I searched in vain to see if I find this at a supermarket or cheese counter in Scandinavia. No one seems to have ever heard of this kind of cheese. Thankfully I have a picture proof :)

Crispy Vegan Cheese

This is my original recipe (yay!). Since I am not keen on buying ready-made vegan/non-dairy cheese, scared of any synthetic ingredients, my go-to vegan alternative is usually the creamy cashew cheese. Inspired by my cheese sprinkles encounter, I baked the cashew cheese to give texture to salads. I have also enjoyed it on its own as a snack. 

This is how the cheese looks like when cooked. 

I then sprinkled it onto salads or as a snack.
