Have you decided to go vegan but miss the joy of eating cheese? Consider Cashew Cheese. While you can buy several brands of this treat on the commercial market, making your own allows you to control the ingredients and adjust for your own tastes. Glenda’s Farmhouse provides an avenue to keep cashews on hand to create this and many other delicious recipes or to enjoy as a healthy snack.

Glenda’s Farmhouse provides wholesome ingredients for use as a snack or an ingredient in various recipes, including this one.

From lasagnas to salads, lunch bowls, and more, cashew cheese provides flavor and texture to rival the real deal.

To make this recipe, you’ll need a food processor. A blender will work as well, but the recipe might require a few tweaks with additional liquid and may lose the cheesy texture you’re seeking.



    1. Put the cashews, yeast, lemon juice, garlic powder, salt, and pepper into the food processor.
    2. Pulse over and over to crumble the cashews into a wet meal.
    3. Scrape down the sides using a plastic spatula.
    4. Switch the processor on and add water a bit at a time while the processor runs for about 10 seconds.
    5. Scrape sides again.
    6. Process for about two minutes until the mixture reaches a smooth consistency. (Add additional water if needed.)
    7. At this point, season to taste with lemon, salt, pepper, and your preferred herbs and seasonings.
    8. Makes 1 cup of cheese.


To store your cashew cheese, keep it in the fridge in an airtight container for a maximum of six days.

You can also freeze cashew cheese, so it makes sense to whip up an extra batch and freeze for future use. Cashew cheese is a great addition to many recipes. From mac and cheese to pizza, cheese boards, sandwiches, atop tortilla chips, and so much more, the uses of cashew cheese are many.
