I discovered something new! I have been reading about making uncheese in many forms for many years. I was never ambitious enough to go for it. I always thought it would take too long or something. Until now! I found a few different recipes for a new way of making slice-able cashew cheese! I was sooooo skeptical but was stunned (happily) by the results.
Now hold on all of you dairy eating cheese lovers, this is not cheese, this is a completely different taste and somewhat different texture so don’t go trying to trick your kids, just call it nut spread or something. But it fulfills that niche for something slice-able and dice-able for snacks and on crackers or spread on breads or added to sandwiches. The flavor is completely versatile – go indian, italian, mexican whatever. Just add the spices you love.
I love that you can mold this into any shape you want! It is kind of like making jello – are you scared yet? Don’t be, it really is great!

Slice-able Dice-able Uncheese!
1 1/2 cup boiling water
1 1/2 Tbl agar agar dissolved in above water
1/2 cup cashews
1/4 cup nutritional yeast (more or less to your liking)
2 Tbls. lemon juice
2 Tbls tahini optional
1 Clove garlic
handful of basil leaves
1/4 cup green onions

these last 4 ingredients are completely changeable they are simply the flavor of your uncheese. use herbs and spices to your hearts desire!
Blend all of the ingredients together. Pour into a glass bowl cool then refrigerate till solid. You can slice directly from the bowl or unmold it. I think it would be cute to use those silicone baking things for different shapes!
