Brazil Nut and Goji Berry Cheese Spread

Turbokid came home from preschool today begging for grilled cheese. I didn't have any commercial non-dairy cheese in the refrigerator and was out of cashews, so I put together this Brazil nut and goji berry cheese spread. It's tangy and gooey, a great filling for a grilled cheese sandwich or spread for crackers. I think it would also be good mixed into macaroni or penne.

Brazil Nut and Goji Berry Cheese Spread

1/3 cup goji berries
1/3 cup Brazil nuts
1/3 cup quick oats
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
3 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp cornstarch (or arrowroot powder)
1 Tbsp tahini
1 tsp salt
2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp ground coriander
1/4 tsp mustard powder
1 1/3 cups water

Blend all ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth. Pour mixture into a medium saucepan and heat over medium heat, whisking constantly, until the cheese is thick and gooey.
