This recipe is for the most delicious and creamy vegan cheese out there! Pili Nuts have the most fat content out of all nuts, so you can imagine how creamy this cheese is!
Preparation time: 40 minutes
100g Pili Nuts (any flavour)
1 ts nutritional yeast
1 tbs lemon juice
1 probiotic capsule
cheesecloth or clean thin towel
Blend together the pili nuts with water and probiotic, ideally, you should get a thick smooth consistency, if it's too watery add more nuts if too thick add more water.
Prepare a bowl where the liquid will be poured into. Once blended pour in the mixture into a strainer that's been pre-lined with cheesecloth and fix it with the rubber band. Place a heavy object on top so that the water will get out of the cheesecloth and form a firm texture.
Leave aside for about 35 hours, that will allow the probiotic bacteria to start the fermentation process. After this time has passed, drain the water from the bowl and open the cheesecloth to transfer cheese into a small container. Start mixing it with nutritional yeast, add lemon juice, salt or any other herb of your preference. Once mixed well make it is ready to be served! Another option, if you feel like you you'd prefer your pili nut cheese to be hard, put it in the fridge for 1-2 hours.
