Cashew Cheese Recipe

1 cup raw cashews

Juice of ½ lemon

1 Tbsp nutritional yeast

Salt (optional) and freshly ground black pepper

1 Soak the cashews in 1 cup of water for at least 2 hours. Drain.

2 Place the cashews, lemon juice, and nutritional yeast in a blender and blend until smooth, adding 1 Tbsp of water at a time, or up to 1 cup, to make the cashew mixture creamy but not runny. Season to taste with salt (optional) and pepper.

3 Refrigerate until cool.

To make herbed cashew cheese, add 2 Tbsp of chopped fresh rosemary and 2 Tbsp of chopped fresh dill, stirring them in with a spoon.
