Good things to eat

Raw Almond Cheese

So now that you know how to make raw almond milk ( click here in case you missed it ) you’ll see that you have left over raw almond pulp.   Seems cruel to toss it away after all you’ve been through together, so how about raw almond CHEESE??

This one is easy and delightful.  And really good for people who can’t eat dairy!

You can do an easy version where you will literally take your pulp and mix it with the juice of half of a lemon and a teaspoon of salt, mix that up and away you go!

But if you’d like something a little more interesting, try this:

In a food processor grind up:

  • 1-2 cloves fresh garlic
  • 2 – 3 sun dried tomatoes soaked and finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh herbs like basil, oregano, parsley etc
  • 1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
  • juice of half a lemon
  • left over almond pulp
Mix thoroughly and then transfer to small containers like ramekins.  Then cover with some plastic wrap.
Okay now here’s the CRAZY part!!  You are just gonna leave them out on the counter or shelf for a day or two!!
I KNOW!  Sounds ridiculous!  But this is what gives it the “cheesiness”!  This is the fermenting process.
Then after a day or two of sitting out you can put it in the fridge or enjoy at your leisure.
Don’t really expect a cheesy consistency.  It is really more of a “spread”.  But then again it does sort of resemble the crumbly consistency of say  Boursin  cheese.
You can experiment to your hearts content with what you want to add to this cheese so it can be different cheese every batch!

And here’s another little tip:

The “raw Pizza” crusts  ( click here if you missed it ) that we made for our raw pizza also make GREAT raw crackers if you just break them up into cracker size bits!
