Vegan Cashew "Cheese"

Has to be tried to be believed. How about trying it on pizza?


  • 1/4 cup raw cashews
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1 ½ Tbsp cornstarch/tapioca/arrowroot
  • 2 cups water
  • garlic powder to taste (say ½ to 1 tsp)
  • onion powder to taste (say ½ to 1 tsp)
  • Salt, optional


  1. In a good blender add dry ingredients first, then add wet ingredients.
  2. Mix well, until it looks smooth (1-2 minutes). It will thicken as you blend.
  3. Pour contents into a saucepan on medium heat. Stir constantly until it thickens.

Keeps for a few weeks in the fridge.
