Recipe type: Vegan Cheese; Snacks, Sauces, Jars
Cuisine: 30 minutes or less; Vegan; Gluten Free
  • 100g cashews*
  • 5 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tbsp olive or rapeseed oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1-3 tbsp water**
  • A generous pinch of salt and black pepper
  1. Put all the ingredients into the bowl of a food processor and blitz until completely smooth. You'll probably need to scrape down the sides a few times to ensure you catch all the cashew pieces.
  2. Scrape out into a sterilised jar and store in the fridge.
*If you don't have a super high-powered food processor, you'll find it easier to blend if the cashews have been soaked in water first (you can even leave them overnight). Drain, rinse, then use them as the recipe describes.
**Start with 1 tbsp and add more to get the consistency you desire.
