Protein-Packed Cashew Mozzarella

You don’t need to worry about getting enough protein with this cashew-based cheese. Raw cashews can either be soaked overnight or boiled and then are blended with the remaining ingredients to create a salty and tangy liquid mozzarella cheese. 

This nut-based “cheese” is best when poured over a homemade pizza with simple ingredients such as a margarita pizza with tomato sauce and fresh basil or add a few chopped vegetables like peppers, spinach, broccoli, or mushrooms for a complete healthy plant-based meal.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

  • Cashews Protein packed and blends to a wonderfully smooth and creamy consistency. 
  • Tapioca Flour  –  Flavorless and versatile, tapioca will become a staple in your household.  For this recipe, it helps the cheese to solidify when baked. 
  • Nutritional Yeast  – Vegan cheese wouldn’t be a thing without this gem. 
  • Lemon Juice  –  Adds a tanginess to this “cheese.”
  • Salt  –   Adjust to your liking, but good cheese has irresistible saltiness.

FAQ & Homemade Vegan Liquid Mozzarella Tips:

  • Will this cheese be stretchy like traditional mozzarella? 

    • No. Unfortunately, this “cheese” will not stretch; however, it does have the taste and appearance of traditional mozzarella cheese and it will brown when baked. 
  • Can another nut be used instead of cashews for this cheese? 🌰

    • Yes, other nuts will work including almonds, hazelnuts, or even brazil nuts for this recipe. But the taste and color will vary slightly, so you may want to remove the skins after boiling.  
  • Tip: Make It Ahead of Time! 

    • The best thing about this recipe is that it keeps remarkably well. In fact, it will last for up to two weeks when refrigerated, so it can be made well in advance and used for multiple pizza nights. Yay! 🍕
  • Tip: Stir Before Using

    • Once refrigerated, the ingredients will begin to separate. However, just a quick stir will suffice and then it’s ready to go just like it was on day one.

    My partner has high cholesterol but she loves pizza. We wanted to find a healthy mozzarella cheese alternative that was stretchy and delicious. This easy recipe is it. We have actually made this a handful of times. It has become a Friday night favorite. Finally a satisfying and healthy mozzarella substitute. As fans of this blog, we look forward to your new, inventive dishes. Keep up the great work.

  • We are using this on top of lasagna tonight. The ricotta inside is white bean and tofu based. They work well together.

  • Hi! Is the 2cups of water to boil the cashews in and then drain or is it to be added at the end?

    • The two cups of warm water should be added to the blender with the drained boiled cashews. This is the “liquid” the rest of the ingredients get blended into. Thank you for the question. Hope you enjoy!!
