: 57 kcal
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup raw cashews
  • 1 cup water (hot)
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 7 teaspoons tapioca starch (2 Tbsp & 1 teasp)
Instructions
  1. Add all ingredients to a high-powered blender like a Vitamix. Blend until creamy and smooth, with no pieces of cashews left unblended.

  2. Transfer to a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir vigorously and continuously with a whisk to prevent clumping, scraping the sides often. The mixture will quickly thicken. It is important to continue whisking thoroughly.

  3. Periodically lift your whisk and observe whether the mixture is beginning to form threads similar to mozzarella cheese. It will not be stringy, but threads will begin to form that are a bit thicker than strings. This is the texture we are looking for.

  4. Once you are satisfied that the mixture is thick and threads are forming to your satisfaction, remove from heat.

  5. Transfer to a glass bowl and set aside to cool. Use immediately or move to the refrigerator for later use.
