Easy Vegan Cashew Cheese (Sliceable And Speadable)

Easy Vegan Cashew Cheese (Sliceable And Speadable) Recipe

By Earth of Maria

🔪Prep Time: 30 mins


▢ 1 ⅓ cups cashews, (see recipe notes)

▢ ¼ cup lemon juice

▢ 1 cup water, (+2 tbsp)

▢ 1 tsp smoked paprika

▢ 1 tsp cumin

▢ 1 tsp garlic powder

▢ ½ tsp onion powder

▢ 1/2 tsp turmeric

▢ 1 tsp salt

▢ 3 tbsp agar agar


1Firstly, soften the cashews. If you are using a high speed blender like a Vitamix, you can simmer them in a saucepan for 15 minutes. Otherwise, I would recommend soaking them in cool water for 4-6 hours, but no more than 8.

2Drain and rinse the cashews and transfer them to a blender or food processor. Now add the smoked paprika, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, nutritional yeast, salt, lemon juice and ⅓ cup water. Blend until very smooth.

3Add the rest of the water and the agar agar to a saucepan over a low-medium heat. Whisk until a thick gel-like consistency forms to activate the agar agar.

4Quickly transfer the activated agar agar to the blender and blend once again to combine.

5Pour the cheese into a lightly greased mould of your choice. Leave to set in the fridge for 6-8 hours before removing and serving.
