My first attempt at Vegan Cheese! Pretty happy with the result. Most recipes I’ve seen use cashews and I took a gamble using sunflower seeds which has paid off. YUM!
2 cups of sunflower seeds
1 large lemon – zest and juice
1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons of organic apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons of dried herbs
5 cloves of roasted garlic
cracked pepper and salt to taste
1 cup of pepitas
What to do
Soak the sunflower seeds overnight using hot water. In the morning drain and rinse.
Add the sunflower seeds and all other ingredients to a food processor.
Blend until smooth. This takes a little while, I also scrapped down the sides of the processor a few times.
Using wet hands shape the cheese and roll in pepitas and sprinkle with some dried parsley.
Serve with your favourite crackers!
