medical medium approved recipe for a cheese wheel

Medical Medium-Friendly Cheese 🧀

When my mom started following the Medical Medium protocol, I promised her I would find her clean alternatives for all her favorite foods. For months, all she wanted was a grilled cheese or quesadilla, but I could not find a clean vegan cheese without additives for the life of me. A promise is a promise, so I took matters into my own hands and decided to make my own. Vegan cheese made mostly with red bell peppers and cashews without any oils or MSG. It is free from dairy, oil, nutritional yeast, vinegar, and natural flavors, but absolutely delicious!

Can be used for quesadillas, sandwiches, crackers and more!
