Chipotle Cashew Cheese

Chipotle Cashew Cheese
  • 2 1/2 cups soaked raw cashews (approx. 16 ounces dry)
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 small-medium garlic clove
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle sauce 
  1. Soak your raw cashews overnight for the best results. Place around 16 ounces of raw cashews in a dish full of cold water, cover and place in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours.
  2. Throw all your ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth. Stop to scrape down the sides if necessary, and do a couple of taste tests in case you want to add more chipotle sauce. If your cheese seems too dry, add one tablespoon of water at a time until you are happy with the consistency.
  3. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It will stay fresh for 3-4 days if you keep it chilled.
