Raw Vegan Almond Cheese [Chef Tina Jo’s Recipes]

Being raw vegan does not mean you can’t have cheese. You can make raw cheese from nuts and seeds. You can even ferment the cheese according to your preferred taste. You can also add seasonings, fresh herbs, and spices to make a tastier cheese.

With this recipe, you can make your own raw almond cheese at home. It is important to soak, peel, and sprout the nuts that you will be using to make a creamier cheese. This almond cheese is perfect to add to your raw pasta dishes, salads or sandwiches. Even if you’re not into the raw vegan diet, you can substitute processed cheese with this healthy, dairy-free, gluten-free, sugar-free, sodium-free, and oil-free cheese.

Ingredients:

• 2 cups of almonds, soaked and sprouted
• ½ tsp probiotic powder
• 1 ¼ cups of water

Instructions:

This recipe takes about 10 to 15 minutes to make. The cheese needs to ferment for at least 12 hours. Serves 1 cheese block.

Put all the ingredients in a blender.
Blend until smooth.
Line a strawberry basket with cheesecloth.
Place a small bowl under the strawberry basket to catch liquid dripping from the cheese.
Pour almond mixture into the strawberry basket.
Fold the excess cheesecloth to the center to cover the cheese.
Place something heavy on top of the cheese like a mason jar filled with water.
Keep the cheese in a cabinet or any warm, dry place.
Let the cheese ferment for at least 12 hours or depending on the taste you want.

Ideas And Tips:

Aside from almonds, you can use other nuts such as cashew nuts, Brazil nuts, pistachios, walnuts, pecan nuts or pine nuts.

You can add fresh herbs and spices to the cheese mixture.

If you want a sweet cheese, you can add dates or honey.

The longer you ferment the cheese the stronger the flavor gets. Make sure you taste the cheese as you ferment it until you get the desired taste.

The strawberry basket will serve as a mold for the cheese block. You can also use plastic colanders or any containers with holes at the bottom and on the sides.
