Plant Based Vegan Cashew Pate

This plant-based cashew pate is so creamy

  This cashew pate is not only delicious but is very healthy too. This vegan pate is made with a superfood called nutritional yeast that gives it a lot of nutrition. I just love spreading this creamy cashew pate on crackers. Trust me after one bite of this cashew pate, you will want more and that's ok because it is loaded with protein, fiber, B vitamins, and lots of minerals. You will love that this creamy pate is also plant-based and has such a wonderful nutty taste.

Look at all the nutrition in nutritional yeast!

This pate is so easy to make

Nutritional Yeast is the superfood ingredient in my 
 cashew pate. This 100% Nutritional yeast is a  delicious salty, creamy, nutty, cheese-tasting superfood can be sprinkled on just about everything! I love sprinkling it over spaghetti squash and oatmeal. Sari's nutritional yeast is naturally comprised of 50% protein (a complete vegan source), over 20% fiber, contains all 18 amino acids and 15 different minerals (including iron, selenium, and zinc) as well as a natural vitamin B-complex and Beta-glucans (known for their extreme immune enhancing properties).

Vegan Cashew Pate

1 cup raw cashews, soaked for at least 4 hours 
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 Tablespoon tamari or soy sauce
1/4 cup water
garlic powder

Oven 250 F

Drain and rinse cashews. Combine all ingredients (except paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper) in a blender or food processor until smooth. Place mixture on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Form the mixture into a round and sprinkle the top with the paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Bake for 50 minutes until edges are firm. Let the pate cool before serving. Serve with crackers.
