First of all, this is not a sponsored or affiliated review. Miyoko is not paying me or giving me free products.
That said, I would take any free products Miyoko wants to throw my way, because I have yet to try a dud from this company and I think over the last two years I've tried *almost every product she offers.
These book links are affiliate links, and I encourage you to buy one of her books, because she's a visionary.
Miyoko's Creamery is the creation of Miyoko Schinner, who is also the author of 4 vegan cookbooks (only one of which I own- Vegan Artisan Cheese- the rest are on my "Need This" list). She uses simple and healthy ingredients to make delicious and complex flavored creations. With Miyoko's Creamery, she has developed incredible cheesy flavor by culturing cashews in much the same way dairy cheese is aged and cultured over time.
Try all her cheeses, and the butter, and you won't be disappointed. I'll even review them later.
But for now, you need to know about this Unlox Your Dreams. It's the greatest thing ever. It's like a cream cheese shmear, but it's made with cashews, coconut oil, and nori. No fish, no problem. I've tried other vegan smoked salmon product, and I was not happy it, but THIS is the real deal. This is the stuff of vegan dreams, and it's unloxed! The flavor truly does taste fishy and even smokey to me, I'm not sure how, but it's Miyoko magic, no doubt. It's kind of fluffy in texture rather than creamy, but to me that mirrors the texture of salmon whipped up. It would be perfect in cucumber cups, on a bagel, or mixed in with a cashew cream sauce on pasta- I think I need to go make all those things right now!
My grandpa, a Long Island Jewish man with an appreciation for bagels and cream cheese, was a huge lox fan. He even made it himself from time to time. Much of my cooking skills and tastes come from his kitchen, and lox is a flavor I have missed and recreated in my own ways (smoked red bell pepper marinated with wakame, a sheet of nori setting on vegan cream cheese on a bagel, etc). Finally, I have a product that I can enjoy with flavors and texture that remind me of Sunday mornings with my grandpa (who has now passed).
To buy this, unless you are in California you will likely have to order it. I ordered it and it was here within a week and even delivering to southern Louisiana, everything was still cold and fresh when it got here.
