Step 1: Preparing the Cheese

Preparing the Cheese
  • 2 cups of Base Cashew Cheese
  • 1 1/2 tbsp shallot, minced
  • 1 tbsp fresh chives, thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh basil, chopped


In small bowl, combine all the Cashew Cream Cheese with all other ingredients well.

Use as a spread for sandwiches, bagels or wraps. Thin out and serve as a delicious dip for crostini and crudité.

This cheese is a wonderful addition to Slow–Roasted Beets, Grapefruit & Arugula Salad.

    Hi Riaz, salt and acid are the two main "seasoning" ingredients and I encourage all of our students to practice using ingredients that provide saltness and sourness. Having said that, please give it a try! Add salt and lemon juice little by little "to taste" as you adjust the Herbed Cashew Cheese to your preference.
