Cashew Brie [Vegan, Gluten-Free]



Cook Time



  • 2 1/2 cups cashews, soaked for 4-6 hours
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons brown rice flour
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 5-6 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1/4 cup pistachios
  • 1/2 cup fresh blackberries
  • 1 package freeze-dried Asian pears or any kind of fruit


  1. Soak cashews in water for 4-6 hours or 2 hours in hot water.
  2. Add melted coconut oil, brown rice flour, and half of the cashews into food processor/high-powered blender. Blend on low until combined.
  3. Keep blender on low speed and add in maple, 2-3 sprigs fresh thyme, cinnamon, Himalayan salt, hemp seeds, and maple syrup. Blend until combined.
  4. Add in remaining cashews and continue to blend on medium speed for an additional 2 minutes.
  5. Line a 9-inch round baking dish with parchment paper.
  6. Pour mixture into dish, give it a few slight taps onto the counter to make sure the mixture sinks completely into the mould, then smooth out the top.
  7. Place in refrigerator for at least 4 hours.
  8. While mold is setting up, you can prepare your topping. Using kitchen shears, cut up freeze-dried pears into small bite-size pieces, mix in with 1/4 cup pistachios, and 2-3 sprigs fresh thyme.
  9. Take mould out of the refrigerator 10 minutes before you are ready to serve.
  10. And add the pear/thyme and pistachio mixture to the top of the cashew brie, then finish off with fresh blackberries and drizzle with maple.
