  • Where did I find it?

Blender Babes, Best Vegan Cheese Recipe Ever - Cranberry Dill Goat Cheese
  • Why do I like it?

This cheese has a wonderfully tangy flavor from the lemon and tahini, yet is not pungent like conventional goat cheese.  I made this for holiday dinner party, served with dried cranberries on the platter.  Not a drop was left!  The texture is semi-soft and spreadable.

  • What did I change from the original recipe?

I added the tahini to the blender with the cashews - there is a typo on the recipe and the author accidentally omitted this instruction.

I decided not to roll it in dill and cranberries as depicted in the original recipe, as my family doesn't always like the flavor of dill.  Instead, I opted to garnish with fresh dill and serve the dried cranberries on the side for anyone who wanted to add one on top of their cracker.
