Does anyone have a cheese recipe that doesnt require dehydration?

I just noticed on :www.rawfoods.com (Paul Nisson's website) they are selling a raw cheese they have called,"parm" supposedly because it tastes like parmesean cheese. It is suppose to be made from all raw ingred.. I have not tried it yet....Hope this helps:)

Alissa's book has all kinds of cheese recipes

I just made an awesome cheese from Cherie Soria's Angel Foods book--Herbed Cheese Spread. It uses rejuvelac and cashews as the base. Takes a bit of prep, but totally worth it for a cheesy treat! Probably the best raw cheese I've had.

If I remember, I will pass the compliment on to Cherie as I will be talking with her Sun. We are on the committee/team for www.rawhike.com.

Rich Cheddar Sauce
From Rejuvenate Your Life by Serene Allison
1 large red bell pepper
¼ c. water
¾ c. raw cashews, sunflower seeds, or almonds (I use 1 c.)
1 T. tahini
3 T. nutritional yeast (I use 2 T.)
1 ½ tsp. sea salt
2 tsp. onion powder (I use a small slice of onion.)
1 clove garlic
2 T. lemon juice
Whiz in blender until creamy. Add more water if it is too thick.

That sounds good Allison I will try this, thanks!

Just went back and edited the recipe to say *small* slice of onion, because if you use too much, it ruins it.

I had the pleasure of making this cheese and we love it ( my son thought it was regular cheese spread). I did not include the dill, and I used red bell pepper and tahini. The taste was superb.
PIMENTO CHEESE (From "Country Life Vegetarian Cookbook")
1 cup water
3/4 cup cashew nuts or sunflower seeds
2 Tbs sesame seeds or 1 Tbs tahini
1 Tsp salt
3 Tbs Nutritional Yeast flakes
2 tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp dill seed (optional)
1/2 cup pimentos (or red peppers)
2 Tbs lemon juice (or to taste)
Blend until smooth. I think this cheese is superior if you use the cashew nuts, although we usually use the sunflower seeds as they are cheaper. It's still good. If it needs to be thicker, just add some rolled oats or quick oats when blending. A very delicious cheese to use in pizzas and lasagna etc. The comments are from the author*

Okay, I made the pimento cheese posted by Sweetlips today and let me tell you...it is THE "cheesiest"-tasting raw/nut cheese I have had to date! I had my daughter taste it and she said it tastes like the cheese used for nachos (this was after I blended in two small slithers of jalapeno).
I, too, used red bell pepper in place of the pimento and used (soaked) cashews AND added a little bit of pine nuts too. I plan to use part of it as the "spread" and then dehydrate the other part and make cheese "slices".
I just noticed that the recipe that Allison posted and the one Sweet Lips posted are VERY similar!

I wonder if it's the nutritional yeast that helps it taste so cheesy, as it already has that kind of a flavor. I've used it to sprinkle on flax crackers before dehydrating so that it has a nacho-like topping (I put it in a metal sieve and tap the edge so that it sprinkles evenly).
