Cashew Cheese

From raw-food rockstar Chad Sarno comes this unquestionably rich cheese, perfect for spreading on crackers.

Serves 6

What You Need:

  • 2 cups cashews, soaked 12 to 14 hours

  • ¾ teaspoon New Chapter Probiotics All-Flora powder, dissolved in 1 cup warm water

  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast

  • ½ tablespoon onion powder

  • ¼ teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg

  • 3-½ teaspoons salt, divided

  • 3 tablespoons peppercorns, coarsely crushed

What You Do:

  1. In a high-speed blender, blend soaked cashews with prepared probiotics until smooth. Transfer to a medium glass bowl, and allow to sit, covered with towel in warm place for 14 to 16 hours to culture.
  2. In a small bowl, combine nutritional yeast, onion powder, nutmeg, and 1 teaspoons salt, then combine with cultured cashews. In a 6-inch spring form pan, press cheese firmly into pan. Allow to chill in refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours until firm.
  3. Sprinkle peppercorns and remaining salt on top, creating an even crust and pressing slightly. Remove from pan, slice into wedges, and serve.
