Raw Cashew Cheese
This "cheese" is wicked good and easy to make. Use in place of ricotta or spread on crackers, etc.
Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups raw unsalted cashews, 1 tsp. sea salt, about 1/2 cup water (give or take), 1 or 2 cloves minced garlic, dash or 2 black pepper
Steps: put cashews in bowl and cover with water about 2 inches above the cashews. let soak for 2 hours. when done soaking, drain the cashews but keep the soaking water. put cashews and some of the water in a food processor and blend until smooth. add the rest of the ingredients and blend again until well mixed. put cashew mixture into a container and put in fridge for 24 hours.
