Do you have any cashew cheese recipes? I've been looking to make my own but I don't know where to start!

Here is a vegan raw/no bake cashew cheese/cream round upa random vegan cashew cheese round up and a vegan cashew cheese pasta round up. My personal favorite cashew cheese recipe comes from these baked shells stuffed with cheesy butternut squash. Here are more cashew cheese, cream and sauce recipes. Here are other vegan cheese recipes. Below are more vegan cashew cheese recipes that I’ve posted in the past. Enjoy!

Beet Rawzagne

by wholehearted eats


Recipe: (Serves 4)

1 Medium to Large Red Beetroot
1 Medium to Large Golden Beetroot
2 Small Baby Zucchini
1 Lemon, juiced
3 Tbsp. Olive Oil
Sea Salt and Pepper

Cashew Ricotta (recipe below)
Pesto Sauce (recipe below)

Procedure:

Begin by making the cashew ricotta - it can be made a couple of days ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator until needed. Peel the beetroot and using a food processor attachment, mandolin, or your keen knife skills (be very careful of your fingers!), cut the beets into very thin rounds (I used a food processor). Using the same technique, cut the zucchini into rounds. Divide the different veggies into three  bowls (you can mix the beetroot, but the red beets will die the golden ones) and equally season with the juice of one lemon, the olive oil, and a pinch of sea salt and pepper. Let marinade for an hour or two. Meanwhile make the pesto sauce and and take the cashew cheese of the fridge to warm up.

After the vegetables have rested, it is time to assemble! I used a 10 cm round cookie cutter as a mould, you can either use a ring or do it free form.

First divide the cashew ricotta into four, then divide each quarter into another four (each 16th should be about 1 Tbsp each).

For the lasagne, begin by making a layer of one veggie in a rough circular shape- it may take two or three pieces to fill in most of the gaps. For the next layer, take 1 Tbsp of cashew ricotta and use wet finger tips to spread it around, making it even. Repeat this process until you have four layers of cashew cheese. I followed the pattern of red beet, cheese, zucchini, cheese, golden beet, cheese, red beet, cheese, and ended with zucchini. Repeat the process until you have four little lasagnes.

Serve the lasagne with the pesto sauce, a large salad, and some sea salt to sprinkle on top.

*To avoid the red beets from bleeding into the cheese,  I realised it was best to blot them on a rag to absorb extra juice.

** There will most likely be extra beets and zucchini rounds left once you are done. They are great julienned and add to salads, etc.
