organicexpert Cashew Mozzarella Try this recipe once and it will be in your repertoire of dairy-free staples. We use it on pizzas, in burritos and on nachos - I suppose it would be good in lasagna too. This recipe is organic, vegan and gluten-free RECIPE
1/2 cup organic raw cashews
2 cups of hot water
5 tbsp of tapioca flour
1 tsp nutritional yeast
1 ½ tsp sea salt
Dash fresh organic lemon juice
Dash of garlic powder
Soak raw cashews in filtered water for 2 hours or more (up to 6 hours)

Put everything into a high speed blender and whizz until silky smooth

Pour the mixture into a small saucepan and cook on medium temperature and stir constantly until it thickens and looks like cheese sauce.

Taste and adjust seasoning – add more salt if required.

Spoon the mixture into a glass container and let it cool slightly.

Dollop the cheesy mixture onto pizzas before cooking or use as a nacho dip while warm.
Enjoy!

organicexpert Walnut 'Meat' Lettuce Tacos Romaine leaves are ready to load up on tiny tomatoes, avocado, minced red onion, spiralized cucumber, match stick carrots and walnut meat. This is seriously good food. Organic, vegan and gluten-free WALNUT MEAT RECIPE
1 cup raw organic walnuts straight from the fridge
1/2 tsp tamari
Dash of pink himalayan sea salt
Dash of garlic powder
Fresh black pepper
(You can add taco spices here too like cumin, dried coriander, pepper flakes)

Put all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until it is a crumbly texture. If you blend this too much you will get walnut butter!

You can eat as is or you can warm slightly in a large cast iron pan (this dries out the mixture a bit and gives more of a ground beef texture)

Enjoy!
