Easy Cashew Cheese!
I make this cashew cheese every week and always have some on hand. It is perfect for topping on toast, mixing into salad, using as a pasta sauce, eating as a dip, and more! It is the perfect vegan alternative to anyone who loves a spreadable cheese. ;)
Here it is in an amazing veggie sandwich:
CASHEW CHEESE RECIPE:
~3 cups boiling waterwater
2 cups raw cashews
1/2 medium sweet onion (white, yellow, or even shallots!)
3 tbs nutritional yeast
2-3 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon dried Italian herb blend (or just rosemary works as well!)
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Cover the cashews with boiling water and let sit, covered, for at least 15 minutes.
Drain the liquid into a glass container and set aside.
Place all of the remaining ingredients in a blender.
Add 2 tbs of the hot water and blend, adding more water as needed.
