Probiotic Cashew Cheese
I just recently made rejuvelac for the first time this week which some of you may know. I wanted to test out a recipe using it instead of the probiotic capsules that I have been using in all my other fermenting experiments. I came across this cashew cheese one from Rawmazing. Link to follow.
This is like a lot of recipes I find. We can ferment so many foods we are already making and loving.
It's one of those things that make you say " why didn't I think of that "?. However like I've mentioned in previous posts, I usually buy my fermented foods & drinks so why would I think of it. Being that I'm just starting to ferment I am doing lots of research and I'm finding so many foods I want to experiment with and try out. Just like this cashew cheese.
I have to admit that mine did not turn out to be as firm as hers did to be able roll in with my hands
in some flavourings. It was a sticky mess. But!!! The taste has a bit of tang to it and I added
black sesame seeds, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, fresh garlic & green onion and salt/pepper.
My texture is of cream cheese. Spreadable and delicious.
I think what might had happened to mind was I covered the mix with a layer of cheese cloth as I was seeing the mix was starting to drying out. It wasn't clear in her methods to me as to exactly what to do about that. But that's for next time. Right now I'm enjoying my first try immensely!
Pop by her blog! Hope you enjoy and mostly may you be Nutritionally Well.
