    Reading thru Richa’s replies to comments/questions, Im going to try mixing other nut/seed flours in with the almond flour to see how the finished products compare – cashew, walnut, brazil nut, pinenut.

    1. Vegan Richa Support says:

      let us know

    Amazing, quick to make and a very versatile recipe! I added a few spashes of liquid smoke to enhance the flavor. If you can’t use soy miso, chickpea or brown rice miso can be substituted. I used a slighly darker miso and the flavor was superb. Enjoyed it spread in a roasted veggie sandwich, also topping a delicious lentil-mushroom burger. I’ll be adding some smoked salt, sundried tomato and chiplotle in an upcoming version!

    1. Vegan Richa Support says:

      sounds yummy

  5. Di says:

    Thanks

    1. Richa says:

      Yes omit it and add more non dairy yogurt

    Non-vegan friends decided this didn’t taste as cheese-like as some cashew “cheese” recipes I’ve shared with them, but they loved it nevertheless. Is great on crackers, bread, or toast rounds as a savory spread.

    1. Vegan Richa Support says:

      thanks

    2. Cheryl Ayres says:

      Ive found the variety of miso makes quite a difference. I liked the flavor from the darker miso personally. If make aged cashew cheese and will be testing incorporating some almond flour in the recipe to see how it modifies the texture.

    1. Vegan Richa Support says:

      ok

  8. Ge says:

    Hi!! Does it freeze?

    1. Vegan Richa Support says:

      it’s possible & will change the texture a little bit. You could freeze the dough without baking it.

  9. Nadia Fisher says:

    Hi! I don’t have almond flour. What can be used instead?

    1. Richa says:

      you can make your own almond flour or cashew flour in a blender or food processor and use that. Pulse to make a fine meal and use

  10. Val says:

    Loved it! I didn’t have vegan yogurt so I used aquafaba instead and it turned out great! I spread it on toasts and top it with salad and avocado for a delicious dinner 🙂
