This is a great Vegan Cashew Cheese that goes well on a lot of things. If you put a little less tapioca starch in it, you can even use it as a dip! Below is a link to a totally Radical Vegan Pan Pizza that uses this recipe.

Make sure to stir quite often on the Simmer Cheese step. This stuff thickens really fast.
