Go nuts for nuts with Olenko’s Raw Vegan Macadamia Parmesan Nut Cheese!!!
This cheese is so easy to make and it is so great with pastas, salads, sandwiches, or as an appetizer. I love to use it with a fruit plater for a holiday party or for a BBQ lunch. This cheese is great for a raw pizza or lasagna. Enjoy!
3 cups raw macadamia nuts
1/3 tsp Celtic sea salt
1 TBS fresh lemon juice
1 garlic clove
pinch go black pepper
1 TBS nutritional yeast
pure water to blend
you can add 1-2 drops of therapeutic grade essential oils such as basil, lime or thyme
Soak macadamia nuts in pure water for about 5-12 hours. Rinse in pure water, then blend the nuts with about 2 cups of pure water in a high speed blender until smooth. You want the water to be covering the nuts, don’t add to much water, but make sure you have enough water so you can process the nuts easily. When smooth add the rest of the ingredients and blend. Place the mixture on the teflon sheets, and use spatula to smooth the top. You can sprinkle other spices or dry herbs on the top. Dehydrate at 110F for about 8-12 hours. Half way flip it to the other side and transfer the cheese on the mesh trays so will dehydrate faster until completely dry and crunchy. Store in a glass container in the fridge or freezer.
It will keep for many weeks.
