This spread will make anyone who samples it happy and they won't even know it took you 5 minutes to make it, that's our little secret...if you decide to share it at all! Enjoy!

Vegan Pimento Cheese

Ingredients

-1/3 cup vegan cream cheese, room temperature
-1 cup grated vegan Daiya Cheddar cheese
-1 cup grated vegan Daiya  Jack cheese
-1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise (I used homemade)
-1 teaspoon vegan Worcestershire sauce
-2 teaspoon ground or finely minced red bell pepper (heaping)
-3 tablespoons pimentos, small minced pieces
-1 teaspoon finely grated onion
-Cracked black or white pepper (optional), to taste

Directions

Using an food processor, blend all ingredients (except pimentos) until smooth and fluffy. Once combined for 1 to 2 minutes, lightly pulse the pimentos in for 10 to 15 seconds. Add all of the remaining ingredients and beat until well blended. It can be used as a dip for crudites or as a vegan grilled cheese sandwich filling.
