Drain and rinse the cashews and blend until it’s very smooth and no graininess is left. You can add some fresh water to get the desired consistency. Add lemon, shallots, tomato, oil, garlic, yeast, onion powder, chili flakes, salt and pepper and puree until smooth. Boil 1 teaspoon of agar agar with ½ cup of water for 2 minutes. While the blender is on and you have a vortex add the boiled agar agar to the vortex. Pour immediately into a mould. Place in fridge to set for at least 3 hours. Turn out onto a cheese platter and enjoy.
