Thoughts: A healthy and RAW alternative for cheese lovers! ... nut cheese ;)
Currently people from around the world are taking on their very own Earth Diet Challenge - of eating only foods from the earth for 9 and 21 days. I have received emails from people and one of the most common challenging foods to not eat seems to be cheese.
So here is a recipe for cheese; dairy free, sugar free, artificial anything free, chemical free, additive & preservative free, gluten free.
Regular Cheese has ingredients including animal rennet, an enzyme which is extracted from the fourth stomach of calves. Find out more on my blog Day 18.
This nut cheese is made from nuts, is also RAW - fresh and healthy!
Nut Cheese Ingredients
2c macadamias (or walnuts, almonds, cashews)
1c pine nuts (or walnuts, almond, cashews)
2T lemon juice
2T nutritional yeast
2 yellow peppers
2T fresh parsley
1T fresh thyme
2t himalayan salt (or sea salt rocks)
1⁄2c water as needed
Action: Process all ingredients together adding as little of the water as possible until a fluffy consistency is achieved.
Store it in the fridge to let it form a mould - or put it straight on your raw lasagana, raw pizza or raw pasta pesto! (Recipes for those on the website!)
Nut Cheese makes a great layer in Raw Lasagana!
And if you like Cheesecake - there is a website for RAW Cheesecake also on the website.
Quotes: Stop thinking and end your suffering.
