Animal suffering and the climate impact of animal products are causing many people to rethink the meat and dairy products they consume. The good news is there are alternatives. And you can make them yourself!
One of these alternatives is cashew cheese. Our colleague Carolin likes to experiment in her kitchen. She has come up with a simple and tasty recipe for cashew cheese using our cashew flour. We discussed how cashew flour is made on our blog here back in the spring.
A heavy-duty blender is usually needed to make nut cheese. But a normal handheld blender can do the job with our cashew flour! Instead of the probiotic capsules available in the health food store, you can also use 50 ml rejuvelac or brottrunk (simply reduce the amount of water accordingly).
Note: Make sure both your hands and kitchen are clean. Tingly cheese or mould are signs of the wrong bacteria. In that case, you should no longer eat the cheese!
Herbal crust: You can give your cashew cheese a herbal crust made from fresh herbs or spices, such as chopped dill and black pepper.
Mediterranean: Mix the finished cheese with a small bunch of chopped basil and 4 finely chopped dried tomatoes.
Refreshing: Blend the cashew cheese with 50 g green peas and a few sprigs of fresh mint.
Oriental: Mix the mature cheese with 1 tsp curry powder and 2-3 finely chopped dates for this variation.
You are limited only by your imagination! Give it a try and tag us if you share your creations on social media.

Smallholders and local producers harvest and refine products of extraordinary quality worldwide. But for many of these producers there is no adequate or stable market. You can buy directly from these producers via the Access to Market Platform and help them to participate in the market. The principle behind this is crowd ordering – a new trade model whereby a number of consumers order a product together so as to achieve a minimum order quantity. We at gebana support the producers with our know-how, and organise the logistics.
Enable someone to make their first export with your order. Please note: Unexpected events often lead to delays, and you may find that the quality is not yet perfect. For this reason, your feedback is absolutely essential. The export experience and your feedback are important steps for the producers towards accessing the market. As a customer, you are witness to the whole process, playing your part in pioneering work.
You can order from these producers simply and directly. You receive your product as soon as the minimum order quantity has been reached and the products are ready. The risk for you is minimal, since the producers already have a product that is ready for market. This sales channel is beneficial to both the producers and the consumers, since it cuts out the middle man.
Be part of the development of supply chains and support innovation! Some of the ways you can do this include testing new products, giving feedback, or financially supporting the producers in their next steps. In doing so, you will be able to see for yourself how the products and supply chains develop.
This is where you can see all the completed projects on the Access to Market Platform at a glance. You can find out where products are now available from or whether the producers are still seeking a trade partner.
