Cashew Cheese

  • 1.5 cups cashew cheese
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons EE olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 3-5 cloves fresh garlic
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1/3 cup veggie broth (water works too)

Soak 1.5 cups cashews for up to 4 hours (the softnesss changes consistency of cheese, soak longer for sauces). Put cashews and rest of ingredients (except nutritional yeast) in blender. Blend until smooth, add more veggie broth/water for runnier consistency. 

Great on pizza or use as a sauce over steamed kale or stir fry, or just use it as a dip! 

Optional: add a few cherry tomatoes for a slightly pink color and fruity taste! Red pepper works great, too.
