  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1-2 tablespoon agar powder
  • 1 1/2 cups raw and soaked nuts
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1-2 juiced lemon
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 2-4 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 clove fresh garlic
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt


Place all ingredients in blender. Cover with water. Blend until creamy and leave in the blender. Heat water and agar on the stove top in a small pot on medium heat. When mixture starts to boil and bubble, turn it on low and let cook for 3 minutes while stirring constantly. Add the agar and water mixture to the blender mixture and blend well. Pour into containers and chill. This cheese substitute will slice and shred after cooled (about 4 hours). Goes great with crackers and on sandwiches. It can be used right away as a melted sauce for steamed vegetables and whole grains.
