Cashew Goat Cheese

  • 1 C. Cashews, raw
  • 1 Tbsp. Tahini
  • 4 Tbsp. Lemon juice
  • 4 Tbsp. Coconut oil
  • 5 Tbsp. Water
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • Cheese cloth

Pimento Spread

  • 1 tsp. Onion powder
  • 1/4 C. Pimentos,chopped
  • 2 Scallions, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. Sweet relish
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  • Soak the cashews overnight.
  • Drain the cashews, then add to a blender or food processor along with the remaining cheese ingredients. Blend until nice and smooth and creamy. It may take a few minutes, and you will probably need to scrap down the blender a few times. You can always add a little more water if it is not getting smooth enough for you.
  • Once it is nice and creamy, add to cheese cloth that is folded over two or three times. Wrap around the cheese and tie it off. Set in a colander over a bowl. Sit in the fridge overnight to drain.
  • The next day, give your cheese a nice squeeze to get out any left over moisture. Add to a mixing bowl, then add the rest of the pimento spread ingredients. Stir together, taste and adjust seasoning. Serve with crackers or veggies. Store in the fridge.
