Staple Recipe: Mac n' Mustard Cheeze

Okay, okay... there's just so many things I want to write about this recipe - starting with how much I love it!
I came up with the idea for this cheeze/spread when my usual craving for "something savory" hit me hard, and I had a limited stock ingredients. If you're a fan of Caraway Cottage Cheeze, and want to try another variation of creaminess then I highly recommend whipping up a batch of this! 

On a totally unrelated note: I've decided to get more use out of my apron collection. If you've been wondering about the change in my photo backgrounds - that's what you're seeing! I'm always looking to expand my collection --- so if you've got an apron that you want to see featured in an AtV recipe photo I'd be more than happy (and excited!) to provide a shipping address...and even a tribute recipe in return!
This recipe goes out to my dear friend Lora of Jabot's Boutique - the lovely apron you're seeing in the background of this photo was a recent gift from her and I couldn't love it (and her) more!! Thanks Chicky!
Mac n' Mustard Cheeze
1 c Zucchini - peeled and chopped
2 c Macadamia nuts
3 tsp Yellow Mustard //or// White Dijon
1 tsp Ape Date Sweetener //or // 1 Medjool Date - soaked in warm water for 10 minutes
1/2 tsp Garlic Granules
2 tsp Nutritional Yeast
2 tsp Onion powder
1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
Puree ingredients until smooth - you will have to scrape down the sides of your food processor once or twice as the mixture will tend to ball up.

Enjoy with Apples, Pears, Breads or Crackers, on salads or even in your soups!

  2. your recipes are great!! I love the apron. What a cool idea for a collection.
    I have a hard time finding raw macadamias...always see dry roasted. Do you ever see them at Whole Foods?
    Peace and RAW Health,
