Twist on Raw Cashew Cheese: Cashew "Cheddar" Cheese:
I saw this Simple 3 Ingredient Cashew Cheese Recipe online a long time ago, but I haven't had the chance to make it. I had been soaking cashews for a day or to over the weekend, and I cooked sauerkraut the other day, so I had some of the starter (juice) left over. As a result, I figured that it was time to try this recipe out. However, I did add a few ingredients. The sauerkraut starter, nutritional yeast, and tahini give this "cheese" a distinct sour and cheddary flavor.
This cheese is supposed to harden (mine just about has at this point), but I was so excited with how delicious it tasted when I made it that I had to share it with you right away. As always, I was eating this straight out of my food processor, amazed with all of the delicious (and healthy) foods that I can make with it.

2 tbsp. tahini
