Ingredients:

  • 1 1/3 cup raw cashews
  • ½ cups non-dairy milk we used plain cashew milk
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1-2 clove garlic
  • 2 tsp onion powder

  • 1 tbsp lime or lemon juice

Instructions : 

  • Place the cashews into a bowl and cover with boiling water ( use Xtrema Teapot!)
  • Let the cashews soak for about 20-30 minutes to  really soften for ultimate smoothness.
  • Next, Drain and rinse the cashews and add to a high-speed blender!
  • Toss in all remaining ingredients and spices and blend until completely smooth and velvety.
  • Start with 1 cup of milk and add more to thin it out until desired texture!
  • Make sure you taste the “cheese” and adjust seasonings as desired. We always add a little more garlic and nutritional yeast.
  • Transfer to an Xtrema Sauce or stock pot and heat over low heat until nit bubbles and becomes warm, stirring occasionally to prevent burning on the bottom!
  • Serve in your Xtrema 7-inch skillet for ultimate presentation skills and tortillas chips and veggies on the side!
