Help with modifying a recipe

Hey gang! I was hoping someone could make some suggestions as to how I could modify this faux cheese recipe from La Dolce Vegan?

Cheryl's Faux Cheese (Kramer 2005: 292).

3/4 cup cashews
1/4 red capsicum, roughly chopped
1 tsp salt
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 cup water
4 tsp powdered agar agar (or 1/4 cup flakes)

I made it following the recipe last week, and I love it! I want to make it again ASAP, however I don't have any more cashews or capsicum (red bell pepper). So any ideas as to what I could substitute? I have some savoury yeast here, silken tofu, various beans and pulses (mung beans, lentils, etc). Please help me! If I don't have another faux cheese toasted sammich soon, I will surely die!
