Cheeky dairy-free cheese
|500 g||sunflower seeds — soaked overnight|
|100 ml||fresh lemon juice|
|3 tbsp||nutritional yeast|
|1 tbsp||Uju Spice Cheeky Chilli Pickle|
Drain the seeds and blend with lemon juice, garlic and water together into a thick smooth paste. Season with cook’s salt, nutritional yeast.
Taste, making sure that everything is well balanced. Transfer the cheese onto a muslin cloth, tying a knot at the top. Suspend the cheese over a colander, placed over a dish (to hold the water from the cheese).
Leave the cheese in the fridge for 12hrs or longer. Unroll the cheese and shape into 1 large ball or small balls, whichever you prefer.
Chop up some fresh herbs or chives and roll the cheese into the herbs.
Plate, topped with Uju Spice Cheeky Chilli Pickle.
Serve with crackers on a cheese platter or add it to a seasonal salad.
