Jalapeno Cilantro Cashew Sheeze

What you need: 

1 cup raw cashews, soaked at least 2 hours
1 jalapeno or serrano pepper, seeded and minced
2 to 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup cilantro leaves (or more)
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1 to 2 cloves garlic, pressed
juice of 1 lime
sea salt to taste

What you do: 

1) Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. You may need to add a bit of water, depending on your blender speed and how much olive oil you use. This sheeze is very good on raw tacos and burritos.

This just inspired me to make a Mexican pizza  :) Thanks!!!


This was very tasty! As my first experience making nut cheez, I'm not sure what to compare it to... but I liked it, and will undoubtedly make it again. Had to use 1/2 almonds & 1/2 Brazil nuts (that's what I had on hand), & it turned out very yummy, though I'll try it again with cashews just to be thorough.  ;)

I also added a little cumin, on general principal... I used 4 Tbsp. of oil & it still needed a good bit of thinning in order to blend well (I used soymilk instead of water), but that may be because I wasn't using cashews. We've been eating it mainly as dip, with crackers-- delish! Thanks for the recipe!
