Ok if you actually eat cheese, this doesn’t really taste like cheese but I love this stuff. I use it as a spread on toast and crackers or as a sauce on just about everything.

The special ingredient here is nutritional yeast. It’s used in vegan food to add that “cheesy” flavour to food and yeah it kinda does. You can get it from large supermarkets pretty easily but you can leave it out if you like. I do think that it adds that special something to the recipe though.

The recipe is from Deliciously Ella.


  • 250ml of cashew nuts
  • 100ml of water
  • 70ml of olive oil
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tbsp of nutritional yeast
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt + pepper

Put all ingredients in a blender and whizz into a sauce.
