View Full Version : How about nuts and seed cheese
09-28-2011, 01:36 PM
One of my biggest problems with trying to change my diet is that I love cheese and food that has cheese in it. But, I keep hearing that the source of a lot of peoples allergies is from consuming dairy products. Dairy foods are mucous forming. Anyway, I would like to get away from dairy for a while and see if it makes any kind of a difference for me. But, first I would like to know how to make alternative cheeses out of nuts or seeds.
I have made almond cheese but it wasn't any good, so I'm curious what you all have found in your experimenting. Any recipes out there that taste like the real thing, or at least taste good?

A lot of people ferment their nut and seed cheeze to help taste. I don't. I just eat almond and cashew cheeze (and I eat eat rarely). I am sure that they will be along with suggestions soon! If not, look up how to ferment through this forums search feature (if it works ... it doesn't always work for me) or look it up on google.

I used to be ADDICTED to cheese! I am not anymore :D yay! So for the best cheese ever, grind some cashews into a powder and add a little splash lemon juice (you'll need less than you think!), garlic and sea salt and let it harden in the fridge. The taste is slightly different from normal cheese of course, but it is SUPER DELICIOUS and I am addicted to cashew cheese now! I haven't bought dairy cheese in MONTHS (and I used to eat like, 2 blocks a week if I could...)
I think the nuts you use to make cheese are important. I find cashews to have a creamier texture and softer flavor and so I prefer them over almonds. I made a cheese with brazil nuts once. It was alright, but not as good as the cashew cheese hahaha.
Also you can flavor the cheese by adding fresh herbs to it or maybe even some cut up olives or onion? Or maybe even chilli! (Oh I must try this...)
