how to make cashew cheese

Cashew Cheese Recipe

Cashew Cheese Recipe


  • 1 cup of cashew nuts (soaked 6+ hours or overnight for a normal blender / food processor, or at least half an hour in warm water for a high speed blender like a Vitamix)
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • Pinch of herbs (I used a mix of fresh basil, chives and flat leaf parsley) 
  • 2 heaped tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Few tablespoons water


  1. Add all items except water to blender. 
  2. Blend, scraping sides down often (I used my Vitamix stick poker thing, but you can just use a silicone spatula with a normal blender.)
  3. Add  a few tablespoons of water at a time and blend more, it might only really get going once the water is added so don’t worry if it isn’t smooth before this point. 
  4. When it has reached the thickness you desire, scrape out of the blender with a silicone spatula and store in the fridge (if you don’t want to eat it right away!).
