Pulse Kitchen's 'Cashew Kind of Blue Cheese' is a soy-free, gluten-free and dairy-free vegan cheese that imitates a classic blue cheese.
True to the way that blue cheeses are spotted or veined with blue mold, the Cashew Kind of Blue Cheese also features a colored interior, but as Pulse Kitchen notes: "Unlike traditional blues, gets its kind of blue colour from pumpkin seeds and spirulina."

True to this theme, many consumers have been turing to dried peas, beans, lentils and chickpeas as rich sources of plant-based protein and other essential nutrients.
