Tempeh-Pimiento Cheeze Ball

The "Tempeh-Pimiento Cheeze Ball" (page 19) is the perfect holiday appetizer, vegan or otherwise!  Meant to step in for the traditional cheese ball, this version stands on its own.  A mixture of tempeh, mayo, nutritional yeast, and pimientos is put through the food processor, shaped into a ball, and rolled in chopped pecans.  Be aware, you should start this recipe early in the day or even the day before, as there are a couple of points along the way where refrigeration is required.  The final result is well worth the wait!  As long as you use a vegan, oil free mayo, no changes to the recipe are necessary to keep this within the McDougall guidelines.  Set out with a variety of crackers and enjoy!
