Makes about 1 1/2 cups

Prep time: 15 minutes | Total time: About 3 hours (including soaking time)


1 1/2 cups orange or red bell pepper (or a combination)

1/2 tsp. garlic, minced

1 cup raw cashews, soaked in water at least 2 hours

1 tsp. sea salt

1/4 cup nutritional yeast

1/4 tsp. turmeric powder

1/4 tsp. onion powder

1/2 tsp. dry mustard

1/4 cup canned green chilies

1/4 cup olive oil


Core, seed and chop the peppers and add them to a blender.

Add the garlic, green chilies, cashews and spices.

Blend until smooth and creamy, about 5 minutes (depending on the power of your blender).

Once smooth, drizzle in the olive oil until just combined. Taste and adjust seasonings if desired.

Store the cheese in an airtight glass container in the fridge for up to a week.
