Turmeric cashew cheese


It can be not very safe to make homemade cheese. Once you’ve soaked the nuts, making homemade cheese is easy. Miso, a probiotic-rich food product, gives the cheese its delicious umami taste. Herbs and spices add a little extra flavor. This cheese is rich in zinc, B vitamins, and anti-inflammatory compounds.


3/4 cup cashews (raw, unsalted)

One tablespoon organic miso (mellow or chickpea).

2 tbsp water

1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar

1/2 tsp smoked paprika

1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric

1 tsp dried oregano

1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder

1/4 tsp salt (optional)


Cashews can be soaked for up to four hours or even overnight.

Add the miso to a small bowl and add two tablespoons of water. Blend the miso and water with a small spoon or spatula until the miso is completely dissolved.

Add the garlic, oregano, and paprika to a food processor. Blend until creamy. Season to taste, or add more salt and pepper if you like.
