Vegan ‘Cheese’ Ball

I’ve always been obsessed with cheese and crackers for as long as I can remember! When going vegan, I think the hardest part is the cheese, for me. And don’t get me started on the weird processed crap from the store.

This walnut ‘cheese’ ball is pretty legit and may have finally changed my mind on vegan ‘cheese’! We enjoyed it with beet crackers!
