Choosing to go off dairy need not mean giving up on your love for cheese. Here's a very simple recipe to make cheese without dairy. Use it generously and guilt-free in your favourite recipes! Is ideal for making cheesy sauces, dips and spreads or can even be used on baked dishes and will brown slightly when baked.

Ingredients
  • Raw Cashew - 1 Cup (Soaked for 6 to 8 hours)
  • Rock salt - ½ tsp
Method
  • Drain out the water from the cashews.
  • Put them in the blender and blend in to a smooth paste, adding little water.
  • Now, put this cashew paste in a glass container and leave it to ferment. It may take 8-24 hours to ferment, depending upon the temperature. Wait until it smells sour.
  • Once fermented, add salt to it and mix well.
  • Refrigerate to store. Stays good for about 10 days.

Wellcure Tip

  • While putting the cashew paste to ferment, choose a container that has enough space to accommodate the rising of the cheese.
  • Fermentation time varies depending upon the climate/temperature of the place. Do keep a check on it after I 8 hours. Once sour, it needs to be refrigerated.

Eating Guide:

  • Food group: Nuts
  • Great replacement for dairy-based cheese.
  • Nuts are a great source of natural data and hence must be added to kids dietary intake.
  • Could be combined with your cooked meals. Remember not to have with fruits.
