Here’s what you need for the ultimate cheesiness:

Cashew Cream Cheese


  • 1 cup raw or roasted cashews
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons water (you can use more or less depending on the consistency you want)
  • 2 heaped tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • Half a clove of garlic
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper


  1. Preheat your oven to 150°C and roast your cashews for 15 minutes or until golden (you can skip this step if your cashews are already roasted).

  2. Add all the ingredients to a high speed blender and blend on high until smooth.

  3. Serve and store the leftovers in a glass jar for meals during the week, food prep done! The cashew cream cheese will last a week in the fridge.


You can add a squeeze of lemon for a sour cream cheese.
