I love cheese and I’ve tried several nut cheese recipes but until now nothing had convinced me much. But then I saw a recipe on the coconut and berries blog and decided to adapt it and try it myself. The recipe is simple. It includes ingredients that I can find easily or have in my house. And it’s really good. I wouldn’t say cheesy, to me it’s more like vegetarian pate. But I’ll definitely make it again, I think it’s a good staple to have in the fridge and it would be a nice starter for when people come round. You can find the original version here.
Preparation: 5 minutes plus soaking time. Servings: 2 people Cooking time:30 minutes Total: 35 minutes
50g raw cashews, soaked (preferably overnight), drained and rinsed
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp water
6 sundried tomatoes, soaked (about 15 minutes) and drained
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 180c. Put al the ingredients for the cheese into a blender and blend for a good 5 minutes until everything is a paste. Put into an oiled ramekin and bake for 30 minutes. Allow to cool before taking out of the ramekin. It’s really that easy!!!
