Vegan Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Adapted from a recipe on "The Blooming Vegan".

6 oz silken tofu
1 cup cooked carrots
3 tablespoons cashews
4 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1 tablespoon miso
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons mimicreme or soy milk
salt and pepper
fresh basil leaves
EarthBalance butter

Preheat frying pan or griddle on medium heat. Place all ingredients through mimicreme or soy milk in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Adjust consistency with more soy milk, if necessary; season to taste with salt and pepper. Spread a thick layer of cheese on a piece of bread and top with a layer of fresh basil leaves. Add another piece of bread to make the sandwich, and butter the outsides of the sandwich with the EarthBalance. Fry on the preheated pan or griddle until golden; flip and repeat.
