Notes:

  • You could add a pinch of turmeric for a deep yellow color.
  • Taste check the cashew paste. If you like it to be more tangy, feel free to increase the quantity of lemon juice.
  • It will be a think 'jelly' consistency. Not as firm as normal cheese. However, you could hold and grate through a grater. Tastes excellent with crackers.
