Drain and rinse the soaked cashew nuts and place them in a blender. Add ¼ cup water and grind until you get a reasonably smooth paste
Add the tofu, garlic and salt and blend to a thick but creamy spread. Transfer from the blender to a bowl. Add finely minced fresh herbs, ground pepper and fresh lemon juice and mix together. (Never put herbs in the blender/food processor or you will have a green cheese!)
Nutritional yeast flakes, if available, can be added for a cheesier taste.
