Ingredients

Instructions

  • Put the blanched almonds in a cup of water and let soak for 8-12 hours.
  • Drain the nuts and transfer to a blender. Add the water and blend on high speed until the nuts form a creamy paste.
  • This part is optional, but you can put the almond cheese inside a sieve over a cheesecloth to drain some of the liquid for a thicker cheese.
  • Mix the salt in.

Notes

Add a little bit of lemon juice or vinegar to give it a tang. A tbsp or 2 should be fine.
Add any fresh herbs, tbsp of nutritional yeast, tbsp of white miso paste, or a tsp of garlic for different flavours!
Keep in an air-tight container in the refrigerator up to 1 week.
