Raw, vegan, totally delicious and dairy free! CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS CHEESE?? It’s so delicious and you would never know it was made from almonds. Whirl it!
1 cup almonds
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 tsp garlic
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup water
Soak your almonds in water overnight
The next morning, peel away the almond skin
Pour your peeled almonds into your food processor along with olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper, and water.
Blend until it reaches a nice smooth consistency.
Place a strainer over a large mixing bowl, and lay on a couple layers of cheese cloth. Pour your almond cheese blend into the cheesecloth and wrap it up.
Transfer the bowl with the strainer and almond cheese to the fridge for 12 hours, or overnight.
To keep it raw, stop here and devour! To add a rind, place your almond cheese ball onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and sprayed.
Mold it however you’d like! I squared off the edges of mine so it resembles a wheel of brie.
Place in an oven preheated to 300ºF for 30-40 minutes.
