  • My Blendtec has four speeds. How do I make this recipe?

  • Definitely going to have to try this one! Anyone have a good healthy cracker recipe?

    Jeanne on

  • I don’t have a twister jar
    How do you do without?

    Ivana on

  • Blend on the high speed.

  • I did. It’s too dry/pasty of a mix. That’s why it needs the Twister that I do not have. I scraped the sides down several, okay MANY times. It eventually worked but was a bit labor intensive without the twister. It is pretty tasty though. FYI, turn off the blender when you’re scraping the sides.

  • I just made this recipe yesterday and it is delicious! I used my new Twister jar and the result was a smooth and creamy spread. The process with the jar was a little violent with processing, but the result was great with very little processing time. I soaked the nuts longer than the recommended two hours, which may have helped with the consistency. If you are processing nuts for the first time don’t skip the soaking process, it’s very important in the outcome of the product. If you don’t have a Twister jar, you definitely want to get one if you’re going to make recipes like this with nuts, etc. Note: This tastes much better the next day so make ahead if you can.

  • I just bought my 1st Blendtec, just took it out of the box. What’s a twister jar?

  • 1. Double the recipe.
    2. Add almonds to WildSide+ jar and secure lid. Press “Pulse” 5-7 times. Dump onto flat surface.
    3. Add the drained cashews to the WildSide+ jar and secure the lid. Blend on Medium (speed 3). Blend for about 20 seconds the stop blending.
    4. With a rubber scraper or spoon, mix up the cashews and replace the lid. Blend again on Medium (speed 3 or 4) until cashews are smooth, about 50-60 seconds.
    5. Add remaining ingredients to jar and select Medium (speed 3 or 4). Blend until all ingredients are incorporated.
    6. Dump mixture over chopped almonds and form a ball. Coat surface of ball with chopped almonds.
    7. Chill for at least 2 hours. Let vegan cheese ball sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.

  • A smaller specialty jar with a twisting lid that scrapes the sides as you blend. It’s great for nut butters and such.

  • We tested it in the WildSide+ jar with success. Here are the steps you should follow:
    1. Double the recipe.
    2. Add almonds to WildSide+ jar and secure lid. Press “Pulse” 5-7 times. Dump onto flat surface.
    3. Add the drained cashews to the WildSide+ jar and secure the lid. Blend on Medium (speed 3). Blend for about 20 seconds the stop blending.
    4. With a rubber scraper or spoon, mix up the cashews and replace the lid. Blend again on Medium (speed 3 or 4) until cashews are smooth, about 50-60 seconds.
    5. Add remaining ingredients to jar and select Medium (speed 3 or 4). Blend until all ingredients are incorporated.
    6. Dump mixture over chopped almonds and form a ball. Coat surface of ball with chopped almonds.
    7. Chill for at least 2 hours. Let vegan cheese ball sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.

  • where can I get a twister jar? I’ve had my BlendTec for years

    JoAnn on

  • I tried this without the toasted almonds on the outside. It was really good, my first tasting of a vegan cheese. I did not measure the lemon juice and I think I put too much in. Next time, I will make sure to measure it. Also I didn’t use the parsley, and didn’t have the onion powder. So I have to say, it worked out quite well even with numerous omissions.

  • A very small over priced Blendtec jar. I just used my Ninja with bilevel blades. I like my Blendtec, but $118. is too expensive for my budget.

  • You can order a Twister jar on our website here: http://www.blendtec.com/jar… Have a happy day!
