Cashew Cheese

One of my special readers asked if I have ever tried  Cashew Cheese in place of the cheese called for in the Thursday recipe.  I know what you are thinking–yuck– don’t be too hasty, I actually really like this cheese made from cashews.  I almost crave it and it is so much better for you, it won’t clog your arteries.  I hope you let me know if you try it and like it, don’t tell me if you don’t.  Just kidding. 

Cashew Cheese

1 Cup Cashews

1 Cup hot water

2 2/3 T  Nutritional yeast flakes

3/4 t Onion powder

1/4 t Garlic powder

1/2 t Salt

4 oz. Jar pimentos or 2 heaping T tomato paste

Blend in blender then add 2-3 T lemon juice.  The best way to get this smooth is to blend the nuts with a small amount of  the water and when it is smooth add the rest.

This is yummy used in Lasagna in place of cheese.
