This recipe is super easy and my go to cheese substitute. It’s creamy and light and can be used on pizza, in wraps, through pasta, on crackers … the list is endless.
Super light and creamy - this soft 'cheese' can be used in a variety of ways. Enjoy!
- 1 cup cashew nuts
- 2 cups cold water
- pinch salt
- 3-4 tbsp yeast flakes
- Soak the cashew nuts in the water for at least 6-8 hours. I do this first thing in the morning and then prepare the cheese at lunch time or supper time.
- Drain and rinse thoroughly
- Place the nuts into a high speed blender along with a pinch of salt and the yeast flakes
- Add a splash of water
- Whizz up until its smooth and creamy - adding more water as you go if needed
Have this as thick or as runny as you like - it's your choice. It'll keep in the fridge in an airtight container or jar for a few days.
