Very impressive!

This pistachio and cranberries vegan goat's cheese is elegant and simple to make and... what a combo! It looks fantastic, it tastes amazingly cheesy, and it is smooth with some crunchiness coming from the pistachios and sweetness from the dried cranberries! I mean, what's not to like?
