Simple Cashew Cheese

Simple Cashew Cheese

Want something cheesy without the dairy? This simple cashew cheese will hit the spot. 

Ingredients

1 cup cashews (soaked over night)

3/4 cup water

2 tablespoons olive oil

3 tablespoons lemon juice

1 clove garlic

1 teaspoons nutritional yeast

Few sprigs of thyme

Optional: pinch Himalayan Salt

Method

1. Place all ingredients in food processor. Process until smooth. This will take a bit of time, don’t rush.

2. Place nut mixture in nut-milk bag or colander lined with cheese cloth.

3. Give a light squeeze and place in refrigerator over-night to set up.

4. You can use the cheese at this point or if you want it more firm, place it in the dehydrator for 6+ hours (at 115 degrees) to form a rind.
