Smelly cheese? 

2 Jun

Let’s make some cheese … cashew nuts cheese of course!

There’s a new fancy restaurant in downtown Miami and they are all about plants.
They also give cooking classes … I don’t really care about cooking classes but when my friends started talking about cheese made with cashew nuts … I was in!

Timing and pricing was not easy to match so I decided to surf the web and I found lots of recipes, hop on Amazon and boom the ingredients were delivered in no time …

I’m ready to experiment the cashew nuts cheese.

My Amazon list is the following

The rest of the shopping list you should have home,

  • 1/4 cup water, adjust for the consistence you like
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice,
  • 1 teaspoon salt,
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder,
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder,

This is what you need for the plain no added-flavor cashew nuts cheese.

I decided to make it with a hint of sesame taste so I added

Let’s hit the kitchen and try to make some cheese …

The cashew nuts were soaked last night, let’s drain it and pour it all in my trusteed Nutribullet and blend it together with all the ingredients from the list above.

It’s doesn’t look like cheese … it’s more a spread … an healthy spread (I like it crunchy, so I leave some cashew crumbs).

You can regulate the thickness of the spread by adding more water.

It’s great on soft tacos, with nachos or on bread!

It’s so easy to make and I love it. I’ll start exploring different seasonings for different tastes …

PS: I’m not turning vegan, nor gluten free I still love my jerky … but this is a great and healthy recipe.
