  • Place all of the ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until smooth. If you don’t have a high speed blender, soak the cashews in boiling water for at least an hour. Drain the cashews and proceed with the recipe.
  • Pour the contents of the blender into a small saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly. As the mixture cooks, it will thicken and become somewhat stretchy. When the mixture comes to a boil, turn down the heat to medium low and continue cooking and stirring for about two more minutes.
  • Pour the mixture into a bowl or container and refrigerate for at least three hours to allow it to fully set.


While this cheese melts beautifully inside a grilled sandwich or in the microwave, it doesn't melt quite as well on top of a pizza or casserole. This is likely due to the oven temperature, and the dryness in the oven.
