a sandwich fit for a third grader!

grilled cheese!

what was once thought to be a high calorie, high fat, unvegan easy, healthy, and cruelty free! 

i got this idea from the ultimate uncheese cookbook. it seems like there are a lot of ingredients, but really it is very easy to 
1 1/3 c water (or non dairy milk to make creamier) 
1/2 c roasted red peppers
1/3 c oats
1/3 raw cashews
1/4 c nutritional yeast 
3 tbl lemon juice
1 tbl tahini
2 tsp onion powder
some salt, garlic powder, ground dill, dry m
ustard, paprika, and some cayenne (optional). 
blend in blender or process in food processor and voila! cheese! spread on bread with tomato and grill or fry. i put mine on my griddle with canola oil spray. 
1/8 of spread= 200 calories, 8 g protein, 8 g fat, 27 g carbs.
