Zesty Almond Cheese

This is a rather scrummy and fairly simple cheese recipe. It is best if you use organic, fair-trade/local ingredients where possible =)

Zesty Almond Cheese

In a bowl soak ½ cup of Raw Almonds and ¼ cup of Sunflower Seeds overnight, drain and wash the nuts and seeds before using them.

In a high-speed blender blend the following until smooth.

Almonds & Sunflower seeds

½ cup of fresh Lemon Juice

¼ cup of fresh Orange Juice

¼ cup of water (this is optional, you can be the judge of how thick or thin you want the cheese to be)

1 pitted Medjool Date (use less if you don’t want a sweeter cheese)

½ teaspoon of Salt

Pour the smooth mixture into a jar or container of your choice.

Next put the following into a small bowl and mix well before tipping the mixture on top of the Zesty Almond Cheese.

2 tablespoons of Red Wine Vinegar

2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 tablespoon of fresh chopped Parsley

1 teaspoon of Fennel Seeds (using a mortar and pestle I crushed some of the seeds slightly to help release the flavour)

This should keep in the fridge for around 5 days.

It is great to spread on crackers and is a perfect addition to a fresh green salad!

Enjoy (-=
