Make Your Own Cashew ‘Cheese’ in a Zip and put it on Everything!

I looked for a homemade dairy free cheese that tastes good and is easy to prepare for some time. Here is a recipe for Cashew ‘Cheese’ that I use repeatedly. I put the s*@#f on everything including toast, pizza, salads, pasta and even cold soup


Delicious Cashew ‘Cheese’ Recipe


This recipe is adapted from one of my favorite Foodie Blogs  TheHungryWarrior.de – Herby Cashew “Cheese”

This ‘cheese’ has a very similar taste and consistency to ricotta. The Apple Cider Vinegar gives it a nice zip.

1 cup of raw cashews/walnuts (soaked over night)

3 tablespoons of nutritional yeast (get it at the health food store)

1/2 tsp sea salt

2 teaspoons lemon juice

2-3 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar (gives it a nice zip)

Herbes de Provence (savory, marjoram, rosemary, thyme, oregano)

fresh cracked black pepper

How To

  1. Soak nuts over night (about 8 hours) in the refrigerator, drain and rinse well.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until you get an even consistency (no big lumps)
  3. Cover and store in refrigerator for up to a week.
