Cashew Cheese

Cashew Cheese

Posted 2014-07-04 by Kate Matefollow
This recipe is a vegan alternative to cheese. It's consistency is more of a spreadable cheese/ dip and is great to serve with crudités or spread on sandwiches.

If you make this keep in mind it is tasty, but if you're going to make it expecting it to turn out like cheese from a cow, you will be disappointed.

Cashew cheese served with vegetables, crackers and fruit. A great vegan alternative for anytime

Cooking Time: 5 minutes
Makes: 1 cup

Ingredients
1 cup of cashews
1/4 cup water
