Vegan Cashew Cheese

I like to use this cheese when I make homemade pizza. It's especially yummy on a crispy crust! It sets up quickly and it's easy to crumble.

Vegan Cashew Cheese
  • 11 ounces water
  • 2 tsp. agar powder

Bring the water to a boil. Sprinkle agar powder over the top and simmer for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  • 3/4 cup cashews
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 Tbs. tahini
  • 3 Tbs. lemon juice
  • 2 tsp. onion powder
  • 2 tsp. mustard powder
  • 1-2 tsp. garlic powder (or 1 clove fresh garlic)

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Pour into container or mold and keep it in the fridge. It should set up within a couple of hours. This recipe makes one block (6 servings).
