Equipment

  • pot
  • pan

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups Soaked almonds (raw and blanched -no skins) rinsed and drained
  • 2 Garlic cloves (I used powdered garlic but even that was too much for morning cheese occasions so you can exclude it)
  • 1/4 cup Fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup Water
  • 1/4 cup Extra-virgin olive oil plus some more for the pan
  • 1.5 tsp Sea salt (I also mixed some herbal salt)

Instructions
 

  • Soak the almonds overnight in a bowl with enough water to cover and maybe a little more. Drain and wash them throughly next morning (or about 8 hours later)
  • Pour them into a blender and add the other ingredients. Blend well until creamy and smooth texture
  • Pour the mixture into a drainer where you covered with cheese cloth and squeeze gently the excess water
  • Then place this into a big bowl and keep in the fridge another 12 hours as it drains slowly and become firm and set
  • Once most of water is gone, take it out and place in a oiled tray and bake in the oven in a tray over a baking paper, about 40 minutes at 180 degree celsius. Bake until it is golden and firm to touch
  • I used macademia nuts next time and not added the garlic, decorated with sesame seeds and loved it even more!
