This easy, spreadable, nut cheese is great on its own and can be flavored to your tastes. Try blending in ½ cup chopped parsley and chives; 2 Tbs. diced chipotles in adobo sauce; or 2 tsp. dried herbs (oregano, basil, tarragon) in the food processor after the base mixture has been processed smooth.
