To prepare the cashews - Place your cashews in a heat-proof bowl and cover with boiling water. Let soak for 1 hour to soften. Drain the cashews and rinse well.


To prepare the cheese - Add all your ingredients to a blender and mix on high speed until smooth and creamy, 1 - 2 minutes.


Transfer your cheese mixture into a sauce pan. Heat over medium-high heat until beginning to boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, 3 - 5 minutes, until the mixture easily pulls away from the pan. Stir continuously.


Once the mixture has thickened, remove the cheese from the heat.


For stretchy mozzarella - You can immediately serve the cheese from the pan. Transfer into a bowl and serve or use in recipes!


For a mozzarella ball - Transfer the cheese mixture into a mold of your desired shape. Place it in the fridge to thicken for 4+ hours.


Once set into shape, slice and enjoy!


To store - Keep the cheese spread or ball in an airtight container in the fridge for 2 - 3 days.
