Fermented Raw Food

Cashew-Sunflower Fermented Nut Cheese

1 1/2 cups raw cashews, soak in filtered water 4 hours


1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds, soak 4 hours


1/2 cup of fermented vegetables like sauerkraut-get a good quality organic brand


2 T extra virgin coconut oil or olive oil


1 garlic clove


1 T nutritional yeast


1 T fresh squeezed lemon juice


1/2 tsp himalayan pink salt or sea salt


You can flavour this up more with fresh parsely, basil, dill or other herbs of your choosing to taste. Add fresh ground black pepper, capers, finely chopped olives, green onion or chives and so on. Other options…sesame oil, coconut aminos, miso, fresh ginger and the list goes on.


Toss everything in the Vitamix high speed blender (you can use a food processor but it won’t get as fine a texture). Add a very small amount of filtered water if you need to thin it a touch. Blend til smooth. 


Have ready sterilized jars and add your mixture to the jars but fill only 1/2 full  so it can expand while fermenting. Put lids on loosely. Let sit in a warm place for 1 1/2 days then refrigerate. It should keep a week to 10 days.
