How to Make Raw Food Vegan Nut Cheese

By RawGlow

Measure 1 1/2 cup almonds* and soak overnight in water. 
(you can  use other nuts such as raw cashews, brazil nuts, and macadamia nuts.)

Rinse and drain the almonds.

Blend the almonds with 1 1/2 cups water, 2 tablespoons chickpea miso, 1 teaspoon coconut oil (optional), and the juice from 3 lemons. Blend until smooth using a tamper or you can make it in two separate batches so that it is less work for your blender.

Pour contents of your blender into a bowl and season with a good quality pink or sea salt to taste. You can adjust for tanginess by adding more lemon juice. To make an herbed cheese fold in 3 tablespoons chopped dill (about 5 sprigs) and 2 tablespoons chopped green onion (about 3 green onions green part only). You can also add any combination of herbs and spices that you desire or leave as is.

Pour mixture into a sprout bag and hang over blender carafe, pitcher, or deep bucket. Let hang in the refrigerator to drain at least 12 hrs or longer for a firmer cheese.

Serve on a raw cracker or on crudités.

Enjoy your raw food diet :)

Maca - blueberry pancakes

By Corinne Rice
maca pancakes:
2 cups cashews, soak 4 hours
1/2 cup water
...1/2 cup maple syrup
1 T maca powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 T flax oil
3/4 cup golden flax meal
1/8 cup almond flour

miso honey butter
1/2 cup coconut oil
3 tsp chickpea miso (NO SOY- they make a chickpea miso with no soy in it by South River- they also have an adzuki bean miso- haven't tried it yet)
4 tsp honey (use the raw honey that is almost wax like and solid at room temperature)

cinnamon whipped cream
1 cup packed coconut meat
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 Tbs yacon syrup
pinch salt

for the pancakes:
Blend all ingredients but the almond flour and flax meal. Pour mixture into a bowl then hand mix in the flax meal and almond flour. Pour a thin layer onto a paraflex sheet (about 1/4 inch thick) on a dehydrator tray and dehydrate 7 hours @ 104 degrees. Flip then dehydrate another 2-3 hours. You want it to be pliable and a little moist, yet firm and in tact.

for the miso honey butter:
Blend all ingredients in a Vitamix until creamy and smooth. Place in refrigerator to chill and firm up.

for the cinnamon whipped cream:
Blend all ingredients with an immersion blender and place in a pastry bag, then put in the refrigerator to chill.

dried blueberries (or fresh)
maple syrup

to assemble:
Use a round cookie cutter, the size of your choice to cut out the pancakes. Top with the miso honey butter, cinnamon whipped cream, dried blueberries and maple syrup- decorate to your fancy and share with your friends!
