Vegan Mozzarella Cheese is easy to make and is the perfect texture.  A little gooey for dips and spreads and creamy enough to spread for layers in casseroles.

  • ¾ cup raw cashews - soaked from 2 hours to overnight
  • ½ cup water - to be added to the mix when blended
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon tapioca starch - or tapioca flour, it's the same thing
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  • Cover the cashews with water and soak rom two hours to overnight. Drain.
  • Add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Turn this blended mixture into a saucepan.
  • Cook on medium heat and stir until the sauce thickens a bit. It will take about 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Take off the heat to cool and it is ready to store or use in a multitude of ways.


For s stretchier/stringier 'cheese' add another tablespoon of tapioca starch during the original process. Just delicious.
