  3. In a food processor, purée boiled cashews, nutritional yeast, water and garlic salt.

  4. Once puréed, remove mixture from food processor and place in large bowl.

  5. Add the chives gently by hand with a spatula. 

  6. Cover the cheese with plastic wrap and chill in fridge for 30 minutes.

Recipe Notes

Do not put chives into the food processor as it will change the colour of your cheese. 

Form your cheese after it has been chilled in the fridge. The cheese will be too sticky to form before it's been chilled.
