Cashew Cheese

This Cashew Cheese recipe is the perfect addition to Janella’s Roast Veggie and Quinoa Salad.

It’s quick to make and delicious!

Ingredients

1 cup/155g raw cashews soaked in 1.5 cups water for an hour

1 tsp lemon zest, grated

1 tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp apple cider vinegar

1 garlic clove (optional)

1/2 tbsp Dijon mustard

1 tsp unrefined salt

½ tsp white pepper, ground

Method

  • 1. Drain your cashews, then place in a blender with the other ingredients and whiz until thick and creamy.

  • 2. Adjust the seasoning to your liking. It will form up once it has been chilling for a couple of hours, making it more like a spreadable cheese. If you'd like to use it as a sauce in lasagna, on pasta, with your protein, then leave it out of the fridge for a while. It will last in the fridge for about a week.
