If you can believe it, I used to help a local philanthropic sorority make cheeseballs to raise funds every year, so I’m no stranger to the process. But this recipe is better because it’s a vegan cheeseball recipe! It’s fun to get creative with your flavorings, so add in your favorite herbs and spices and experiment!
- 8 ounces vegan cream cheese
- 1 tablespoon vegan mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon vegan Worcestershire sauce
- 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- Sliced almonds to coat
Spread almonds across a plate, clean cutting board, or piece of plastic wrap. In a medium bowl, gently combine cream cheese, mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, and onion powder. Using your hands, form the mixture into a ball. It will be soft. Roll the ball in the sliced almonds and wrap the cheeseball in plastic wrap or clean cheesecloth to maintain shape. Refrigerate a few hours or overnight, plate, and serve. Enjoy!
