Rate this recipe


  • 100g cashews (soaked in water overnight)
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp fresh chopped chives
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • Salt & Pepper
Prep Time


  1. The night before you want to make the cream cheese, place the cashews in a bowl and cover with cold water. Leave them to soak overnight or for at least 6 hours.

  2. Drain and rinse the cashews then add them to your Ninja Kitchen food processor along with all the other ingredients.

  3. Blend for 30 seconds, then you’ll have to give the ingredients a mix and scrape down the sides. Blend again. Repeat these steps until you’re left with a smooth, creamy mixture – add more water or lemon juice if necessary.

    Enjoy on a toasted bagel, spread on crusty bread, stirred into pasta or as a dip with veggie sticks.

    Keep in an airtight container and consume within 5 days.

My love and passion for vegan food was initially inspired by health problems. After being diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and coeliac disease as well as suffering with mental health issues, I realised my diet needed to change drastically. My symptoms were affecting every area of my life, so I began to look at what food I was putting into my body and educated myself on how nutrition has a direct impact on how we feel, physically and mentally.
