While you can certainly make a tasty lasagna or panini without the use of cheese, once you've tried this cashew dill mozzarella, you will be adding it to everything! This dairy-free cheese is made from protein-rich cashews, given a subtly sweet undertone from dill, and is incredibly stretchy thanks to tapioca. Melt this cheese on pizza, in a grilled cheese, or simply enjoy it with some crackers!

Preparation

  1. Place all the ingredients, except for the fresh dill, into a high-speed blender and blend for 2-3 minutes. Once combined, add the fresh dill.
  2. Pour the mixture into a saucepan over medium heat and stir frequently until clumps are forming.
  3. Continue stirring at all times until you get a stretchy consistency.
  4. Take the saucepan off the heat and pour the mixture into a small plastic bowl (you can oil it first for an easier removal). Make sure to spread it evenly.
  5. Place the bowl into the refrigerator for 1 hour or until it’s firm.
  6. Take the hardened up mozzarella out of the bowl. Place upside down on a serving platter and serve.
