Preparation

  1. In a blender, combine the cashews, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, and 1 cup (240 ml) of water. Blend for 1 minute, until very smooth.

  4. Allow the mixture to cool until the steam evaporates, then add to the blender with the other ingredients.
  5. Blend for 1 minute, until smooth.
  6. Pour the mixture into a medium bowl and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or until thickened.
  7. When ready to serve, invert the cashew cheese onto a plate. Slice or mash into cashew cheese spread and serve.
