1 cup raw almonds
1/2 cup water
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp garlic
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
👉Soak your almonds in water overnight
👉The next morning, peel away the almond skin
👉Pour your peeled almonds into your food processor along with olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper, and water.
👉Blend until it reaches a nice smooth consistency.
👉Place a strainer over a large mixing bowl, and lay on a couple layers of cheese cloth. Pour your almond cheese blend into the cheesecloth and wrap it up.
👉Transfer the bowl with the strainer and almond cheese to the fridge for 12 hours, or overnight.
👉To keep it raw, stop here and devour! To add a rind, place your almond cheese ball onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and sprayed.
👉Mold it however you’d like! I squared off the edges of mine so it resembles a wheel of brie.
👉Place in an oven preheated to 300ºF for 30-40 minutes.
