Dairy Free Mozzarella Cheese

  • Dairy Free Mozzarella Cheese

    • You use this cheese just as you would regular mozzarella cheese.

    1/4 C. raw cashews (soaked in water for several hours and then drained IF you don’t have a high powered blender)
    1 C. hot water
    2 T. + 1 t. tapioca starch
    1 T. extra virgin olive oil (optional)
    1 small garlic clove, minced
    3/4 t. sea salt
    1 t. fresh lemon juice


    • Blend all ingredients together in a high speed blender until completely smooth, about 1 minute.
    • Pour into a small saucepan and cook, stirring constantly over medium high heat. After a couple of minutes the mixture will start to look weird, like it’s curdling or separating. - - - This is totally normal, reduce heat to medium and KEEP stirring so you don’t burn the cheese to the bottom of the pot.
    • Keep cooking and stirring until it's really thick (about 2-3 more minutes) and the mixture becomes like a cohesive mass of melted dairy cheese and stretches.
    • Remove from heat and let cool a bit while you assemble the pizzas.
