DIRECTIONS

  • Soak cashews in water for 3 hours if you have a high-speed blender (vitamix), 8 hours for a normal blender. Then drain. (The longer you soak, the smoother the cheese.).
  • In the blender, combine cashews, 1 cup water, yogurt, coconut oil, nutritional yeast and 1 tsp salt. Process until smooth.
  • Transfer mixture to a large bowl, cover and let sit at room temperature for 24 to 36 hours. (Taste occasionally to check the flavor.).
  • Pour mixture into a medium saucepan and using a whisk, mix in tapioca powder and agar agar. Heat over medium heat stirring frequently. Cook until mixture is thick and pulls away from the side of the pan (about 5 minutes).
  • Line a 6-inch cake pan with cheesecloth and pour in hot cheese mixture. Spread mixture evenly and let cool in refrigerator for 4 hours or until firm. The inside will still be very soft.
  • Remove from pan and remove cheesecloth. Wet hands then sprinkle them with 1/4 teaspoons salt and rub wet salt all over the cheese. Place cheese on a wire rack and let sit in a cool spot for 24 hours. Flip cheese over and let rest 12 hours until it appears dry. Wrap in wax paper and store in refrigerator for 2 weeks or put in a plastic bag and store in the freezer.
