Vegan Cashew Mozzarella

This vegan cashew mozzarella is made with a small handful of simple ingredients and it comes together in less than 10 minutes. Simply blend raw cashews, filtered water, nutritional yeast, arrowroot starch (thickener), apple cider vinegar, and a bit of sea salt. Then, pour the the mixture into a pan and whisk over medium-low heat until the mixture thickens into an almost stretchy, gooey melted cheese consistency. Dollop the cheese on pizza, sandwiches, tacos—whatever your heart desires.
