Cashew "Cheese"

This is great for so many things - on top of roasted veggies, pasta,on pizza, on tacos and this list goes on and on.

Soak 1 cup of cashews for 2+ hours in water. Drain

Add ⅓ cup of nutritional yeast flakes. (These can be found at health food stores like Trader Joe’s or Sprouts)

½ cup of almond/cashew milk.

Teaspoon or two of chopped garlic

Salt and pepper- few shakes

Crushed Red Pepper- few shakes

Squeeze of half a lemon or few drops of lemon essential oil.

Put all ingredients in the blender and blend.

I always taste it and add ingredients depending on taste and how thick the sauce is.  If I want it “cheesier” I will add more nutritional yeast. If it’s too thick, I’ll add some more almond milk or even water. Needs more of a pop, I’ll add a bit more crushed red pepper. Serves 4-6
