Recipe's preparation

  1. Place cashews and water into TM bowl, and pulverise for 10 seconds on speed 8. Place mix into an open mouthed jar (1l), cover with plastic wrap and secure with a rubber band. Cover with a towel and keep in a warm place overnight.

    Place onion, coriander and garlic into TM bowl and chop for 5 seconds on speed 7. Check to see if properly chopped, scrape down sides and chop again if necessary. Add remaining ingredients, including cashews and mix for 10 seconds on speed 3.



Serve in place of cheese on crackers or bread, in place of mayonnaise for salads, or as a base for dips. Will keep for 3 days in fridge.

The longer you ferment the cashews, the warmer the night and the longer you keep the cheese, the 'tangier' it will become.

    could you use nutritional yeast in this recipe?  I've heard that it helps with getting that "cheesy" flavour ....
