Brazil Nut Cheese

Brazil Nut Cheese

 

This is a versatile raw nut cheese that has many nutritional benefits.  It is reminiscent of ‘Boursin’ and is a great dish to put out on a buffet table to be eaten with crackers, crudités or toast.  It went down very well with all the people in the shop when I made it as part of a raw food demonstration on 21 December!

 

Ingredients:

1 1/3 cups raw Brazil nuts (approx 160g)

3 tbsp Olive Oil

¼ cup lemon juice

1 clove garlic

1 tsp salt

Poppy seeds, finely chopped herbs or cracked black pepper to coat the cheese

 

Method:

Soak the nuts in cold water for 4-6 hours.  Drain and place in a food processor or powerful blender (blenders like a Vita Mix make short work of producing this cheese!).  Add the lemon juice, garlic and salt and process until mixture is smooth and creamy (it may take up to 8 minutes in a food processor).  Remove the cheese, shape into a ball by hand then roll in the coating of your choice.
