Boursin

Ingredients

  • 200 gm tofu
  • 200 gm or 1 cup raw cashews (soaked for 6 to 8 hours)
  • 1 cup fresh herbs (basil, tarragon, parsley, dill, mint, spring onion greens or chives)
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 tsp garlic ground or minced fine
  • ½ tsp salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • water as needed

Method

Pour out the water from the cashews. Place the cashews in a grinder. Blend till you get a reasonably smooth paste adding up to ¼ cup water if needed.

Add the tofu, garlic and salt in the blender to make a thick but creamy spread. Remove from the blender into a bowl. Add finely minced fresh herbs and fresh pepper, lime juice and stir together. (Never put herbs in the food processor or you will have a green cheese!)

Yeast flakes can be added for a cheesier taste, if available but are not necessary.
