Soft cashew cheese flavored with fresh dill sits on crisp beet slices in this unique appetizer. This refreshing snack is like a raw take on cheese and crackers. It's easy enough to make as a quick snack, but when garnished, it's fancy enough to serve as an appetizer at parties.

Beets With Dill Cheese [Vegan]



  • 1-2 beets, sliced thin
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1/2 cup lemon
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • A pinch of Himalayan pink salt
  • 1 tablespoons ground black pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped or minced
  • 1/2 cup of water


  1. Add all of the ingredients in a blender, add a little bit of water, and blend on high, adding water as necessary. You do not want this thin, so just add a little water at a time.
  2. Once you have the right consistency, stir in the chopped dill with a wooden spoon.
  3. Add a spoonful on top of each beet slice and sprinkle with dill, for garnish. Serve.
