Raw Vegan Almond Cheese Recipe, Ep230

May 7th, 2010 Natasha St. Michael

Over a year ago I took a raw food uncooking class with Cherie Soria of Living Light Culinary Institute. I learned how to make this beautiful Raw Vegan, Herb Almond Cheese which I am going to show you how to make today, plus how to make a collard leaf sandwich out of it as well!!

Nut & seed cheese are great to make because you get all the beneficial bacteria and probiotics, plus its so easy to digest– even for people who have a hard time digesting nuts and seeds.

The full recipe is at the bottom of this post.

1 Cup Water

1/4 tsp probiotic powder or 1 capsule of probiotics (capsule removed)

-blend all ingredients in blend until silky smoooth.

-select a fine mesh strainer and line it with cheese cloth

-pour the almond cheese on cheese cloth, cover it with the cheese cloth, place a plate under the strainer and one over the almond cheese and put a heavy weight (a rock or a jar of water) on top of the plate covering the almond cheese– this extra weight will help push out excess liquids from the cheese.

-Leave the almond cheese in a warm area with no direct sunlight to ferment for 8-12 hours.

    Good morning Natasha; I am going to start the almond cheese today. I am going to try some kefir water for the probiotics and will let you know how it turns out. I started making my own kefir water about three weeks ago. Thanks bunches and have a great weekend.

    Hi Randy,
    Just curious as to how your almnond cheese turned out using Kefir water. I have been making Kefir water for abount 2 months. Would be nice to find another use for it.

    hello just reading the thread and i am interested to hear how it went using kefir – i don’t have access to live culture right now but have a kefir powder – could i use this just to test instead of the probiotic powders and live kefir – ? thankyou

    I know many people may know the answer but do I actually need the probiotic powder?
    I was going to attempt this recipe soon so I just wondered if it was a do or die ingredient.
    Also, this may be a dumb question, is everything in this completely safe for a lactose intolerant person? I figured almonds were safe but the probiotic was my main concern.

    @Richard
    You need to buy probiotics that are free of milk. I buy the vegetarian ones that do not contain milk, soy, yeast, eggs or wheat.

    I bought the capsules and I cut the capsule so I could pore the probiotics into the cheese.

    I did not use the powder kefir, I have live water kefir grains. I used the kefir water, which I liked better than the kombucha, will use the kefir water from now on.
