This is a chunky-style of cashew cheese because it is dotted with bits of kale and crumbles of silky cashew. If you want to blend and further strain this mixture for a silkier version – go for it. But I loved this “quickie” no strain method and actually enjoyed the chunkiness of the texture. You could really see the cashews and kale. Yet the texture is still creamy enough to slice and spread.

You might need to buy:
  • soaked cashews
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • apple cider vinegar OR citrus juice
  • also: water or additional non-dairy milk as needed to get the cashews blending

20 March 2012 - I made these changes. I forgot to put in salt and added about 1 to 1 1/2 cups of water and a Rapunzel bouilion cube. AND I cooked it for a while, (at least 1/2 hour), otherwise it just looked too raw. Art & Elyssa liked it, and it was pretty simple. And it has kale!
I served it with open face broccoli and cheese sandwiches (shredded italian, and a little grated pecorino romano), and sauteed zucchini.

“Top this soup with crumbled tortilla chips, and or grated cheese, such as cheddar, Monterey Jack, or asadero.”
