Recipe - Raw Cashew Cheese (Vegan)

This cheese is easy to make and makes a wonderful spread.

1 cup raw cashews (soaked for 6 to 8 hours)
⅓ tsp unprocessed salt

Pour out the water from the cashews and place them in a blender.

Make this into a smooth paste adding a little water. Now leave this to ferment in a glass container for 8–24 hours depending on the room temperature until it begins to smell sour.

Add salt. Mix well and serve. Refrigerate to store.

This can keep for 10 days or more. Ideal for making cheesy sauces, dips and spreads, or even just directly on bread.

It can even be used on baked dishes and will brown slightly when baked.

Note- The fermentation time differs based on the room temperature and the climate of the place where you are. Please keep an eye on the cheese after 8hrs. It should be placed in the refrigerator after it begins to smell sour.

Serves 4–6

  1. Thank you for giving us the recipe related to cheese but I got a question. Can we freeze them to so that we can also use them later? or is it just one-time use?
