Love vegan cheese spreads but dread the costs? Here’s a garlic and chive vegan almond cheese spread recipe that would allow you to devour on plant based spreads without burning a hole in your pocket.

When it comes to vegan cheese we definitely have our fair share of picks available to us. We have every “cheese” flavor and texture available to us and most at our neighborhood grocery store. But as delicious as they are they can easily break the bank, especially if you have a full house to feed. If you live on a budget like me, the best way to save is to buy in bulk. Nuts, seeds, and beans are a huge saver if you buy them in volume.
This garlic and chive vegan almond cheese spread recipe is a great versatile spread for crackers, bruschetta, and even to switch out mayo on your favorite veggie sandwich. I like using almonds for this recipe because the texture allows you to spread or dip without it running off the end of a cracker. Almonds are an amazing source of healthy fat plus it has a good supply of magnesium. If you need the perfect appetizer for get together, pot lucks, or just a good ol’ refrigerator staple , you’re in the right place. Here’s the garlic and chive vegan almond cheese spread recipe.
