Lox of Love with Dairy Free Dill Cream Cheese

 During my weekly grocery shopping I passed some lox and started to dream about cream cheese and bagels.  I don’t spend too much time in this dream world though (because there is always a tasty alternative to be had) and popped those lox into my basket with a grin along with some gluten free English muffins.  Before bed I put  1/2 cup of cashews in some water to soak until morning and breakfast was nothing short of a dream come true.  This recipe is based off THIS vegan/dairy free “sour cream.”  


Ingredients
These gluten-free English muffins
-1 package of wild caught Lox
-1/2 cup cashews, soaked for at least 4 hours (I soak mine for around 6) 
-1 teaspoon dried dill
-1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon salt (to taste) 
-3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (more or less to your sour preference)
-3 tablespoons filtered water (or more until desired texture)

How To
1.  To make the cream cheese place soaked cashews in blender with salt, dill and add 3 tablespoons of water and 3 tablespoons of lemon juice.  Blend.  Continue blending and adding water or lemon juice until your desired consistency is achieved.  I prefer a thicker spread and used more lemon for a sour taste.  
2.  Toast English muffins
3.  Add lox
4.  Make your favorite cup of tea and enjoy an elegant breakfast.
