Making your own nut cheese doesn't have to be complicated. There are plenty of recipes for "cheese" to be found on prana.bio, like the delicious raw vegan parmesan or the creamy cashew "cheese" with fine herbs. Whether it's served with pasta, in a sandwich, as a dip, or simply sliced or spread onto a baguette, there's a nut cheese for every craving or taste. These recipes can be made with almost any kind of nut. Cashews add a truly soft and creamy texture that's tough to beat, but you can also use almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, walnuts, or hemp seeds. Each will give a different flavour and texture, so try out a few different ones and enjoy the adventure!

  • ½ cup PRANA organic raw European almonds
  • ¼ cup lemon juice or apple cider vinegar
