If you're looking to make some easy, healthy, delicious, vegan cheese, this recipe is for you. With all of the artisan vegan cheeses popping up, I thought it was time to join in the fun and was so shocked at how easy and cheesy the whole experience was.

Cashew Dill Cheese [Vegan]



  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon agar powder
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill



  1. Lightly grease 6 spaces in your muffin tin using vegetable oil like sunflower or safflower.
  2. Place the cashews, nutritional yeast, salt and onion powder in a blender or food processor and process until you have a fine cashew texture (not a cashew butter).
  3. Heat water in a small saucepan to a boil and add the agar. Stir with a whisk and reduce the heat to a simmer continually stirring for 5 minutes.
  4. Add the cashew mix into the agar and water mix and stir with whisk to fully combine. Then add the dill and stir a few times.
  5. Now spoon the mixture into the 6 muffin tins spaces and place in the fridge.
  6. Let the cheese set for about an hour uncovered in the fridge and then turn out the cheese onto a plate and enjoy!
