1 cup raw cashews
2 cups filtered or spring water
1/4-1/2 cup almond milk (optional)
sea salt & spices to taste
Sea salt & pepper- traditional
Oregano, garlic, sea salt, crushed red pepper- use like ricotta in lasagna
Onion powder & sea salt, & dehydrated onions or chopped chives- sour cream & onion-y
Nutritional yeast & sea salt- blend smooth & use for macaroni & cheese. Add diced jalepeno, onion & tomato for “queso.”
Soak cashews in water for at least 8 hours or over night.
If you want a “ricotta like” texture:
Drain water and process in nutribullet or food processor with spices.
If you want a smooth texture:
Drain water and add 1/4 cup almond milk or water. Process with spices, add more liquid and process again for a more smooth texture.
