  1. 1) In a blender, combine the water and the cashews. Start with 3/4 Cup, and add more if required. Blend until the cashew paste is very smooth.
  2. 2) Place the paste in a jar and cover in a clean towel and let it sit in a warm place overnight. This will allow the fermentation of the cheese, that will lend it a sour taste.
  3. 3) Transfer the cashew cheese to a mixing bowl and stir in the remaining ingredients.
