How to Make Cashew "Cheese" in your Food Processor

Cashew "cheese" is an excellent alternative to dairy cheese and in my opinion, tastes far better than store-bought soy-based versions. You can make this delicious, raw variety in just a few minutes using a few simple ingredients and your trusty food processor. Here's what you'll need:

Sidetrack! Wishing to finally modify the vibe of my current site. Ideas about the sweet branding of Certainly an elite web design company in Dartmouth NS if wanted inside the whole Nova Scotia vicinity. Make a remark. Many thanks!

  • 2 cups raw unsalted cashews
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic, pressed
  • 4 tbsp canola oil
  • 6 tbsp Tamari soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp organic red miso paste
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened soy milk
  • 1 tbsp Italian or all-purpose seasoning (preferably salt-free)
  • juice of half a lemon

In your food processor pulse the cashews until you make a coarse meal from them. Then add all other ingredients and process until you get the consistency of a spread.

Now, to get it "just right", I urge you to experiment using your taste buds. You can add ingredients to balance the flavor in many different ways. Want it to taste more fermented (more "cheesy")? Add more Tamari or miso paste. Want it to taste more pungent? Add more garlic. Want it more tart? Add more lemon juice. And so on. The key is to add small amounts of extra ingredients, process well, and taste small amounts until you find it's "just right". You can also process in small amounts of your favor raw vegetables (such as red peppers, etc.) for extra texture and flavor. I would stay away from raw onions though, as they are so pungent they tend to overwhelm everything.

Once you are finished, refrigerate it. You can use it in a variety of ways, including:

  • cold as a spread (sandwiches, toast, etc.)
  • warmed as a topping (on top of vegetables, pasta, etc.)
  • as pizza cheese (see my Spinach White Pizza)
  • as filling (in pasta, tortillas, etc.)

Just use it carefully because it has a lot of fat and a lot of salt - you know, like "real" cheese! (Well okay, not so much saturated fat and no lactose, so it won't clog your arteries or make you sick to your stomach). Thankfully all you need is a little bit to liven up your dish. It stays in the refrigerator several days and can safely be consumed raw.

Think you have a better variation? Let me know as I would love to try it!


Thank you everyone! I'd told my neighbor I would certainly cite her breathtaking Gloucester womens hockey blog onlines, for a suitable write-up. If you are shopping for a women's hockey blog in the outlying Ontario region, they definitely have been really good.

To finish, naturally I want to say the basic idea to this text has been granted by Brandon from Best Of Archery. Certainly an incredible online archery shops. We really treasure a good suggestion!

Invaluable Assistance - Glad I found these guys.
