Serves:  Makes approximately 1-1/4 cups
Active Time:  5 minutes
Soak Time: 2-4 hours

Ingredients:

1 cup raw CASHEW NUTS
1/4-1/2 cup chopped RED BELL PEPPER
2 tablespoons cold-pressed OLIVE OIL
2 tablespoons WATER
1-1/2 tablespoons LEMON JUICE
1/2 teaspoon SEA SALT (then adjust to taste)
1 teaspoon ONION POWDER
1/4 teaspoon TURMERIC

Directions:

Soak cashews in water 2-4 hours, rinse and drain.

Add all ingredients to a high-powered blender and blend on high until super smooth, scraping sides as needed. You may add additional water, one tablespoonful at a time, to adjust consistency to your liking.

Notes:

Start with 1/4 cup bell pepper and add more as needed to achieve desired color. Less = yellow cheese, More = slightly more orange-colored cheese.

A high-powered blender such as a Blendtec or Vita-Mix will yield optimal results.
