1/4 cup raw cashews
1 cup hot water
2 Tablespoons + 1 teaspoon tapioca flour or starch
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon dried herbs, optional
Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender until completely smooth, about 1 minute.
Pour mixture into a small pot and cook over medium-high heat.
The mixture will begin to curdle after a few minutes. Reduce heat to medium and continue stirring to avoid burning.
Keep cooking and stirring for 2-3 minutes until the mixture looks like melted cheese and it stretches.
Place the mixture in the fridge to cool.
