Cashew cheez crumbles/spread (Paleo, Vegan)

This recipe is versatile like many of mine. The cheez can be used as crumbles on salads or burrito bowl style dishes. I have also used it as a cheez spread on homemade bread or crackers. The seasoning is also adaptable to your palate. Feel like having an herby cheez? Add Italian seasoning with or without garlic and onion. Looking for a little kick of spice? Add some ground chipotle pepper and / or cayenne.

Basic Ingredients
1 cup raw cashews
2  Tbsp palm shortening
1/4 tsp Sea salt

Seasonings:
3/4-1 tsp mustard powder
2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
3/4-1 tsp paprika
