Vegan Bacon Ricotta Crostini with toasted bread, cashew creamy ricotta, crispy vegan bacon pieces and drizzled with maple syrup.
* Place cashews in a lidded container. Add water until the cashews are covered. Place the lid on and refrigerate at least two hours, up to overnight. You can speed this process up by placing the raw cashews in a saucepan, add water until cashews are covered and bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook for 3 - 5 minutes, until cashews are tender. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Either process: drain the water. **Feel free to add additional seasonings like dried oregano, basil and/or salt and pepper to taste
