Cashew Cheese

Cashew Cheese

(Enough to make pizza for 4-6 people)

Recipe from Diane’s Vegan Kitchen: http://www.diannesvegankitchen.com/2013/09/20/green-and-white-pizza/

Ingredients:

  • 125g raw cashews, soaked in water for an hour or more
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons water

Method:

  1. Rinse the cashews
  2. Put all ingredients into a blender / food processor and process until a smooth sauce is formed.
  3. This sauce can be poured over pizza as a simple vegan alternative to cheese. It will harden and brown in the oven.

Note: The Jain-friendly pizzas in the photo below were made using ready made pitta bread, passata with herbs, vegetables (courgettes, peppers, olives) and cashew cheese.
