Craving Saver! The fenugreek seeds give it the amazingly real pimento cheese texture. Eat on celery or a raw cracker or bread. My boyfriend couldn’t tell this wasn’t real cheese. He had it on sourdough. This isn’t a very good pic but he has lost about 20 lbs and you can see it in his face here..=)
A raw version of Nutella, a delicious European chocolate-hazelnut spread.
Nutella®, in its original form, was first created in the 1940s by Mr. Pietro Ferrero, a pastry maker and founder of the Ferrero company. At the time, cocoa was in short supply because of rationing due to World War II, so chocolate was very limited. So Mr. Ferrero used hazelnuts, which are plentiful in the Piedmont region of Italy (northwest), to extend the chocolate supply.
My new version of a great staple seed-cheese you can enjoy as a dip, in a collard-wrap, as part of a raw pizza, as a spread on crackers, or even rolled into little balls and dehydrated as snacks (my favorite!) Any which way, it’s a great way to get more probiotics into your diet without having to glug down plain rejuvelac on a daily basis Ã la Wigmore, and now it’s just a little bit tastier.
For vegans and vegetarians who miss dairy products,
seed cheese delivers! Itâ€™s made from sprouted sunflower
seeds and almond milk, water, or kefir. This recipe wonâ€™t
taste good unless the sunflower seeds have been sprouted!
Soaking the seeds removes the strong â€œrawâ€ taste and
makes them sweet. The lemon and vinegar add delicious
tang. This versatile recipe is adapted from the
Casa De Luz Community Cookbook: Sauces, Dressings, Condiments,
and Spreads, (www.CasadeLuz.org) given here with
their blessing, and has become a staple in our diets.
There are 35 grams of protein in one cup of sunflower
seeds! The look and texture of sprouted seed cheese is
like ricotta or cottage cheese. We use sunflower seed
cheese in any recipe that normally would call for sour
cream, cheese, or yoghurt. It has found its way to
roasted veggies, salads, soups, crackers, fruits, green chilies, and much more. Sprouted seed cheese is an enzyme-rich food that will last 2 – 3 days, covered, in the refrigerator. Sometimes the cheese becomes a bit grey from oxidation, but this doesnâ€™t seem to affect the taste. The lemon juice usually keeps the cheese white and bright. Leaving the skins on the sunflower seeds makes the seed cheese greyer. Taking them off makes the cheese whiter and smoother.
“I use it as a base for many Italian dishes, such as raw lasagna or raw-violis An easy lunch idea is to place 2T. or more of nut cheese on a sheet of nori, chop up some scallion, cucumber and tomato, and roll up. Cut into rolls. Yum!”
