One of the biggest challenges faced by the lactose-intolerant and vegans alike is the desire for cheese. Before I became a vegan, I had no idea that you could actually make cheese without dairy at all – just from nuts and seasonings! Thankfully, necessity being the mother of invention, I learned how to make a cheese out of nuts that is so tasty that my cravings are satisfied.

Baked Nut Cheese [Vegan]

Ingredients

  • 1 ½  cups raw cashews or blanched almonds
  • ¼  cup lemon or lime juice
  • ½  cup water
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1 – 1 ½  tsp salt

 

 

Preparation

  1. Soak the nuts overnight in a bowl of water to cover.
  2. Drain the nuts and place in the blender with the remaining ingredients.
  3. Blend until smooth.
  4. Place mixture in cheesecloth and close up.
  5. Place cheesecloth in a strainer over a bowl.
  6. Place in refrigerator overnight.
  7. The next day, drain off any liquid
  8. Plop mixture out of cheesecloth into an oiled oven-proof bowl or dish.
  9. Bake in a pre-heated 180C oven for 40 minutes or until the cheese is firm and the top is beginning to crack, dry and turn golden.
  10. Serve warm or let cool and store in fridge.

Is it strictly necessary to soak cashews overnight? Which is the minimum hours to soak the nuts to achieve the proper texture?

It was not ready in 40 minutes... was still very white and very creamy. I had to leave it in the oven for longer time... Now 20 minutes longer it is cracking although very light...

Too difficult for me. I wish the Beyond Meat guys would take a whack at non-dairy cheese.
