Herb-Crusted Cashew Cheese

Exceedingly Vegan

Sliced vegan herb-crusted cashew cheese

This simple homemade cheese really packs a flavour punch!


  1. Vegan cashew cheese ingredients:
  2. 75g unsalted cashew nuts
  3. 150ml water
  4. 4 tbsp corn starch
  5. 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  6. 2 tbsp lemon juice
  7. 1 tbsp olive oil
  8. 3/4 tsp salt
  9. 1/3 tsp garlic powder
  10. Other ingredients:
  11. Herbs de provence


All you have to do is add all cashew cheese ingredients into a good blender and blend until you get a very smooth consistency.

Then pour the mixture into a pan and heat up. Make sure you stir constantly. After a few minutes, it will change texture and turn into a thick paste.

Transfer the paste into a tupperware dish and even out so it’s neatly packed into the dish.

Let set in the fridge for 1 hour or until it has completely cooled down.

Then sprinkle some herbs de Provence on a plate. Coat the cheese on all sides. Enjoy!

Yes, that was it already, so simple!!
