This is the easiest vegan cheese recipe ever, and it only requires simple ingredients. It’s full of goodness and heart-healthy fats, vitamins and protein. The texture is hard and is sliceable. Hope you enjoy this simple cashew cheese!

  • 1/2 cup +  1 tbs  water
  • 4 tbsp corn-starch

  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

  • 1/2 tsp salt

    I love this cheese alternatives. Cashews have such a rich, creamy texture, I bet they make great cheese. Thanks!

    I am not a vegan but I am going to try this. As much as I love cheese, I think it is one of the causes of some health problems I have had in recent years, although nobody is sure- but I won’t get into all that! I love cashews so I would be interested in trying this alternative.

      That’s great not doing a specific diet doesn’t mean we cant try different things ? this one is a hard sliceable cheese, if you want other cheese recipes more creamy or melted let me know and I can send them to you ( they are not on the blog yet) and they are also made with cashews and super easy to do ?? thanks for visiting Ana x

    Como é a textura? É daqueles meio firmes que ainda dá para barrar? Beijinho

    • Ana Rocha ??

      Olá Cristina, este é de cortar às fatias, é bastante firme, se quiseres um de barrar tipo queijo derretido tenho uma recita optima que te posso mandar por email 😉
