(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/
- 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
- Rinse the cashews
- Put all ingredients into a blender / food processor and process until a smooth sauce is formed.
- 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.
Can this be used for any vegan cheese recipe such as vegan mac and cheese?
Yes, it can work with mac and cheese. But you may find you need to add slightly more liquid to prevent it getting dry.
I enjoyed reading a few recipes of yours. Thank you! Will try them soon.
May I request you to let me know how to make vegan butter please?
