Garlic and Onion Cashew Cheese and Lima Bean Toast [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

High Protein Vegan






  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1 3/4 cups frozen lima beans, defrosted and patted dry
  • 1 cup flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon, divided
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground onion powder
  • pinch ground garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 8 thick slices crusty bread, like sourdough, toasted


To Prepare:

  1. In a medium bowl, cover raw cashews with warm water. Allow to sit for a minimum of 60 minutes, then drain water and rinse cashews.
  2.  Meanwhile, in another medium bowl, gently toss lima beans, parsley, olive oil, and juice of 1/4 lemon until well combined. Season to taste. Set aside.
  3.  Once cashews have soaked, in a high-speed blender, or food processor fitted with an “S”-blade, blend cashews, remaining juice of 1/4 lemon, nutritional yeast, apple cider vinegar, onion powder, and garlic powder until very smooth. Season to taste. Transfer to a mason jar or airtight container.

To Assemble:

  1. On each slice of toast, evenly spread 1/8 of cashew ‘cheese mixture’. Top with 1/8 of lima beans and greens mixture. Serve.

Yeah, but part of the joy of being adult is never having to eat lima beans again. Ever.
