    1 teaspoon crushed garlic
    2 tablespoons lemon juice
    salt and pepper to taste
    1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, or more

Drain and rinse cashews. In a food processor, blend cashews until chunky use your S blade. Then add garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper, and herbs. Blend until smooth. Taste to check for flavor, adding more garlic, herbs and/or salt and pepper. If cheese has become too thick you may add a few splashes of water.

Let sit in fridge for a few hours and the flavours will take hold!
