Herbed Cashew Cheese
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Flavourful and versatile vegan cheese substitute, amazing on pasta, pizza, salad and crackers.
  • 1 Cup Cashews (soaked for 1-2 hours)
  • 2 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
  • ½ Lemon
  • 1 tsp miso paste
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • ½ tsp dried basil
  • Toppings:
  • Chopped walnuts
  • Dried Cranberries
  • Rosemary
  • Dried Basil, oregano
  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed.
  2. For a smoother spreading ricotta serve right away with toppings.
  3. For a more solid cheese, wrap in a kitchen towel and place in a bowl in the fridge overnight. Unwrap and press toppings in and serve with crackers, pizza, pasta or salad!
To speed up soaking your cashews, use boiling water. Depending on the strength of your food processor you may have to soak the nuts for more or less time.
