Cashew Cheez (3)I think I ended up eating 99.9% of this cashew cheez all on my own because I was certainly not sharing it. Sure, the In-house Taste Tester maybe got a piece of bread and a cracker or two with the cashew cheez spread on it. This stuff didn’t stand a chance in this house once I discovered how fantastically good it is. (However, lest you think I’m a total glutton, I ate it all over the course of a few days and not just one one sitting…)

What makes it good is the flavor explosion from the cashews with the bite of the green onions. Make sure you puree the cashews so it’s nice and smooth. This is nothing like you’d get in the store and it makes a decent amount so it’s worth investing in the cashews. (I bought mine in bulk at the organic store.)

If you don’t have nama shoyu use tamari, soy sauce or some liquid aminos. The cheez keeps well in the fridge and can serve both as a spread or a dip. It’s good enough to serve for company, but, like me, you’ll find it’s so good that I don’t think you’ll want to share it with anyone else but your self.

  1. Very interesting…I have seen cashew ice cream but never a cashew “cheez”. I will have to give this one a try.
