This 1-step Almond Cheese doesn’t need to be soaked overnight as with other nut cheeses and requires just 4 ingredients to be made. It’s creamy, delicate and versatile and super easy for anyone and everyone to make. The only step required is mixing!
This cheese reminds me very much of a mix between feta and cream cheese. Almond flour is used to create this creamy, spreadable cheese which can be used on toast, jacket potato, pizza, sandwiches and even in frosting if you omit the yeast flakes and salt.
