Cashew Cheese


  • ¾ cup raw, unsalted cashew pieces
  • 1 tsp light miso
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • ¼ tsp dried oregano
  • 1-2 tsp cold pressed virgin olive oil


Combine the above ingredients in a food processor along with 2-3 tbsp of water so that the mixture becomes smooth. Process for about a minute, pausing to scrape down the sides of the food processor as needed to ensure all ingredients are incorporated. Taste and adjust salf, water and other seasonings as desired. The mixture will be smoother if you can soak the cashews for 1-2 hours first. Sometimes you may not have time and that’s alright.
