Pizza with Potato Cashew Cheese

Happy Friday!  Wow, this week has flown by!  This is going to be a pretty short post, because I have to get to work.  I wanted to tell you about the Potato Cashew Cheese that I made the other night though.  I got the recipe from Zombie Cats Eating Plants.  Her recipe can be found here.   Amber really out did herself with this recipe by combining potatoes, cashews, nutritional yeast, and some spices for a delicious cheese sauce.   As you can see in the picture below it is so creamy.  I used half a cup of nutritional yeast in mine, because I wanted it to be cheesier tasting.  I was wishing I had some tortilla chips to dig into the cheese while I was waiting for my pizza to cook.  My husband thought it was weird to be making cheese out of a potato, but after I was finished, he admitted how good it looked.  He still opted for the real thing on his half of the pizza though.  For better pictures of the cheese and some great looking pizza's check out Amber's blog

Here's the pizza right out of the oven.   Roma tomatoes and mushrooms were my choice of toppings this time.  I sprinkled a little dried basil, salt, and pepper and then drizzled a little olive oil on top before it went into the oven.

Doesn't the cheese look like real mozzarella melted?

The first part of the week, I had breakfast for supper.  I made scrambled tofu.  I used Happy Herbivores recipe, but instead of taking the time to chop veggies up, I used a bag of frozen broccoli and cauliflower.  I also threw in a few chopped carrots that I had left over from lunch.  It was delicious.  I had fried potatoes and biscuits with homemade muscadine jelly to go with it.  Muscadine jelly is my absolute favorite jelly.  What's your favorite kind of jelly?

I hope everyone has a great weekend.  I plan on doing some baking that I didn't get to do last weekend! :o)



  1. OMG that pizza looks divine!!! I like your choice of toppings too, it looks and sounds so delicious. And as I'm sure we all know by down I'm a total breakfast freak so breakfast for dinner sounds perfect to me! The scrambled tofu looks amazing.

  2. Wow, that really did melt/form well. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I've got to put that cheese on our list. It sounds & looks so good!

    Never heard of muscadine.... I'm intrigued! My favorite jam is raspberry.

  4. Very cool idea! I think tomato and mushrooms are my favorite pizza toppings, looks soo good!

  5. ahhh, that pizza looks great! i really like this idea of potato cashew cheese...intriguing!

    also, you can't go wrong with tofu scramble!

  6. Wow, that is some thick and creamy cheese! I'll have to check out the recipe. I'm guessing it tasted pretty good, too. Love your simple toppings - they sound perfect. Never heard of muscadine jelly. My favorite would have to be the classic strawberry jam. :-)

  7. The pizza looks so good!! Loving that the blogs are full of warm fall foods now!

  8. Muscadine Jelly is a new one to me as well. I've heard of Muscvadet Wine though. I love all Jelly, especially on a toasted English Muffin.

  9. It really does look like Mozarella!

    Your blog doesn't come up in my reader :-/ Have no idea why!
