Almond Cheese

Almond Cheese

Raw vegan almond cheese is a delicious and nutritious alternative to traditional dairy-based cheese. Not only is it packed with protein and healthy fats, but it's also easy to make at home with just a few simple ingredients.

Step 1: Soak Your Almonds

The first step in making raw vegan almond cheese is to soak your almonds overnight. This will make them softer and easier to blend. Soaking also helps to remove enzyme inhibitors and phytic acid, which can make the nuts easier to digest.


Step 2: Blend Your Almonds

Once your almonds have soaked overnight, drain them and add them to a blender or food processor. Add enough water to cover the almonds, and blend until smooth. You may need to stop and scrape down the sides of the blender a few times to make sure everything is evenly blended.


Step 3: Add Your Flavorings

Once your almonds are blended, it's time to add your flavorings. You can get creative here and add whatever you like. Some popular options include garlic, herbs, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, and sea salt. Blend everything together until it's well combined.


Step 4: Strain Your Cheese

To get a firmer, cheese-like consistency, you'll want to strain your almond cheese. Line a colander with cheesecloth or a nut milk bag, and pour the cheese mixture into it. Let it sit for a few hours, or overnight, to drain. The longer you let it drain, the firmer it will become.


Step 5: Enjoy!

Once your almond cheese has drained, it's ready to eat! Use it as a spread on crackers or sandwiches, or crumble it on top of salads. It's a versatile and delicious addition to any meal.
