Cheese, real cheese, the food loaded with artery clogging saturated fat, is one of the hardest foods for people to contemplate bidding a fond farewell. This recipe will show you how well worth that good-bye will taste!

1 large yellow onion, peeled and quartered
1 cup roasted red bell peppers packed in water or 1 large pepper, seeded and quartered
1 T tahini (optional)
3 T raw cashews or small pack of cashew cream sauce
1 cup nutritional yeast
1 T soy sauce (low sodium tamari)
1/8 - 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
salt to taste

If your onions are very strong, and you can tell if they bring tears to your eyes when you cut them open, then blanch the onion in boiling water for a few minutes.

then drain the onion and combine all the ingredients in a high speed blender or food processor and puree until smooth. If you want a smoother consistency add a bit of water and thin to desired texture.

This cheez is great with baked chips, over refried beans and tortillas, use with macaroni for a fabulous mac and cheez. Use as topping over baked potato with broccoli. Its uses are varied. Be creative and enjoy!
