So awesome. I’ve made this a few times now and it is fantastic every time. I just wish it would last a little longer, because it is always gone so soon!
1 cup cashews, soaked 2 hours
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tsp nutritional yeast
1 tbsp finely chopped leeks (any onion will probably do fine)
a few sun-dried tomatoes (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
water as needed
I also put in white miso but I wouldn’t do that again unless I was going for a sweet dessert ricotta-type of cheese.
This was even more fantastic after a day in the fridge letting the flavors meld. It seriously reminds me of a creamy, herby cheese I used to eat long ago called Boursin. For lunch today, I seriously ate four pieces of “pizza” topped with this delicious cheese, fresh tomatoes and dill. It was to die for. Definite 5/5 happy monkeys. Can’t wait to make it again.
Next time: I’d also like to try wrapping it in a nut bag and letting it sit out for a day to see how that goes.
