Ah, Thanksgiving leftovers. What’s not to love!
It’s easy to figure out what to do with all the mashed potatoes and pie (eat it, duh) – but what about the extra can of cranberry sauce and all of those leftover herbs in your crisper drawer?Make use of both in this recipe for this decadent Herbed Cashew Cheese and Cranberry Crostini. The best part? You can use either canned cranberry sauce or homemade/fresh, and you can mix and match the herbs you have leftover (we love the combination of fresh rosemary and thyme).
2 cups raw, unsalted cashews, soaked overnight and drained
1/2 cup water
2 TBSP lemon juice
1 TBSP extra virgin olive oil (plus more for brushing crostini aka rice cakes)
1 clove garlic
1/2 TSP white miso
1 TSP sea salt
pinch of fresh cracked pepper
1 TBSP nutritional yeast
1/2 TSP onion powder
1 TBSP finely minced fresh rosemary
1 TSP finely minced fresh thyme
1 pack of Smartbite Snacks rice cakes
Cranberry Sauce (about 1 cup)
Preheat oven to 375°F.
1. Place soaked/drained cashews in high-speed blender, along with lemon juice, water, extra virgin olive oil, garlic and miso. Blend until cashews are completely smooth. Stop blender frequently to scrape down the sides of the blender and incorporate mixture together. If necessary, use blender tamper to help mix everything together during blending.
2. Once smooth, transfer the mixture to a medium bowl and add sea salt, fresh cracked pepper, nutritional yeast, onion powder, minced rosemary and minced thyme, mixing thoroughly. Taste for seasoning and place in refrigerator for 1 hour (mixture will firm up during this time).
3. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or nonstick baking mat. Arrange rice cakes on baking sheet and lightly brush each piece with olive oil.
4. Bake for 2-3 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside to cool slightly.
5. Spread the herbed cashew cheese evenly.

March is Nutrition Month!
It's also goodbye winter, hello spring kinda month (who else is excited to welcome the first day of spring on March 20?) And what a better way to celebrate this occasion with a bowl of nutritious spring soup?
Soup is definitely having a moment in our household at the moment and we're not just here for it: We're right behind it, stoking the flames.
With big flavor, bright green colour and short ingredient lists, this soup du jour is impressive enough to serve to friends but casual enough to slurp loudly when no one's around. Gather your blankets, light a candle, and queue up your favorite TV show and turn on the stove. It's soup time!!!
