Recipe: Simple Almond Cheese
Simple Almond Cheese
1 cup almonds, soaked, drained and skins removed
3/4 cup water
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 clove garlic
pinch Himalayan Salt
Soak almonds overnight in water. Drain and pop off skins.
Place all ingredients in food processor. Process until smooth. This will
take a bit of time, don't rush.
Place nut mixture in nut-milk bag or colander lined with cheese cloth.
Give a light squeeze and place in refrigerator over-night to set up.
You can use the cheese at this point or if you want it more firm, place it
in the dehydrator for 6+ hours (at 115 degrees) to form a rind.
