Rich and Creamy Cashew Cheese

Rich and Creamy Cashew Cheese

Makes 16 oz.

This is great on its own and can be flavored to your tastes. Try blending in 1/2 cup chopped parsley and chives; 2 Tbs. diced chipotles in adobo sauce; or 2 tsp. dried herbs (oregano, basil, tarragon) in the food processor after the base mixture has been processed smooth.
  • 2 cups raw unsalted cashews, soaked 12–24 hours, and drained
  • 2 Tbs. nutritional yeast
  • 1 Tbs. lemon juice
  • 2 tsp. white balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ tsp. granulated onion powder
  • ⅛ tsp. granulated garlic powder
  • ⅛ tsp. white pepper, optional

Place cashews in bowl of food processor. Process 1 minute, or until rough paste forms. Add 1/2 cup water and remaining ingredients. Process 3 to 5 minutes, until smooth. Transfer to lidded container, and refrigerate 12 hours to allow to thicken. Spread on sandwiches, crackers, or pita.

Base ok. Doubled the garlic, white pepper, & onion to get a more savory flavor.
