How to make the best creamy vegan garlic cream cheese spread

My favourite vegan garlic cream cheese spread is made with raw cashews that has been soaked in water. The longer the cashews soak, the creamier the cream cheese will get. But as I am known for my impatience, I usually like to just soak my raw cashew nuts in boiling water for 10-15 minutes which cuts way down on the soaking time while still achieving that delicious creamy texture. 

How are these amazing easy greek style lunch sandwich wraps made? It couldn’t be easier. Just:

Instructions

Making the vegan garlic cream cheese

  • Soak the cashews for 10-minutes in boiling water or leave them to soak overnight in cold water if you want your cream cheese to be extra creamy. Drain and rinse the cashews and add them to a food processor.
  • Add non-dairy yogurt, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, garlic powder, onion powder and dried oregano and blend until smooth. You may need to scrape the sides down a few times to get everything blended to the same texture. Add extra salt if needed. Store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. 

For the tomato salsa

  • Add the chopped tomatoes to a bowl along with the chopped red onions, lemon juice, salt and chopped cilantro. Stir together and add more salt if needed. 

Making the sandwiches

  • Spread 2 tablespoons of vegan garlic cream cheese over the greek flatbreads and top generously with the tomato salsa. Add 2-3 falafels on top of each sandwich. 
  • Serve right away or wrap the sandwiches in baking paper and tinfoil if you are eating them later or bringing them with you to go. Enjoy.
