How to make Raw Cheese

The hardest thing I found in going Raw was giving up cheese, even though in my head I often put myself in the shoes of the cows and think would I like my boobs attached to a machine all day and my little baby taken away from me! sorry for the kill buzz there! So what is the alternative! Its RAW Cheese and its pretty darn good!20121230-165137.jpg

This is the simplest recipe and the closest recipe to making cheese that tastes good cheese. You can add different flavors to this base recipe, like a pesto, sun dried tomatoes, red peppers etc..  and it will store in the fridge in a sealed container for about two weeks – good luck trying to keep it for that long though.

 

 

 

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of (soaked over night) Macadamia Nuts or a mix of macadamia and cashews is also lovely
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 teaspoon of probiotics

Method

Place mixture into a cheese cloth and put on top of a sieve so the excess water drains out. Place a bit of weight on the top so it helps push the water out.

Cover and leave at room temp for 24 hours.

Then remove and mix with a pinch of salt and Squeeze of lemon and 2 tea spoons of nutritional yeast.

Place in a mold and you have RAW cheese, you can place it straight into the fridge or you can also place it in the dehydrator and it will form a rind similar to what dairy cheese does.

And there you have it RAW cheese.
