Back in Thyme: Bacon Wrapped Cashew Cheese Stuffed Dates

Back in Thyme: Bacon Wrapped Cashew Cheese Stuffed Dates

These vegan bacon wrapped dates are made with chewy Upton’s seitan bacon and cashew cheese. They are great for a dinner party, since you can do all of the cheese-making, date-filling, and bacon-wrapping ahead of time. Just excuse yourself from your guests for a few minutes to give them a quick fry (the dates, not your guests), and you’re good to go.

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup raw cashews, soaked in water overnight
  • 1 Tablespoon white miso paste
  • 2 Tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 40 pitted dates
  • 1 package Upton’s Naturals seitan bacon
  • Toothpicks
  • Organic canola or vegetable oil, for frying
