Okay, for some reason I love all things made with almonds, and I do LOVE making food at home.
The reason why, it is because of all the extra ingredients they use out there, It also allows me to know precisely the kind of nutrients my body will be absorbing.
This is a surprisingly easy recipe to make, and it only takes 7 ingredients. You can serve the cheese with crackers, veggies, or even in sandwiches!!
Go ahead, be brave! And you will be amazed at how easy to make this is.
1 cup almonds - peeled
3 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 garlic clove
1/3 cup water
1/2 tsp. nutritional yeast
1/4 tsp. salt
Mix herbs - I used Herbs de Provence, but any would do
soak almonds in water overnight - make sure the water covers the almonds for about 1 inch.
the next day, drain and rinse the almonds.
place the almonds, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, water, nutritional yeast, and salt to a food processor and mix until smooth. You may have to pause and scrape the sides from time to time.
once you get a creamy and smooth consistency, remove the mix, and if it is too wet, you may have to place it in a colander with a container underneath to drain all the excess liquid. This process requires refrigerating the cheese overnight.
put the mix in an airtight container and refrigerate for at least 2-3 hours.
remove from the fridge, form a ball, and roll over the mix herbs of your choice.
Store in the fridge for about 4 or 5 days.
Serve this tasty cheese with crackers of your choice, veggies, sandwiches...or just a spoon.
Note: if you need to remove the almond peel, it should be pretty easy, but it would take you a few extra minutes. After you soak them overnight, you just need to squeeze the almond between your fingers and the almond will fly right out. Have fun with this!
