 Dear One,

If you are reading me for the first time, welcome to my blog, and thank you for stopping by. If you have been here before, thank you for visiting again.

Did you know you can make raw vegan cheese out of pumpkin cheese ? If you have recently adopted a vegan diet and you have been missing your cheese, or you are not vegan but you want some variety and enjoy pumpkin seeds goodness, try this and you will be pleasantly surprised.

Now, raw vegan cheeses do not usually taste like dairy cheese … But I totally adore the fermented flavours, and even though I do eat goat and ewe cheese, I also frequently enjoy a variety of raw vegan cheeses. This pumpkin seeds one has a cute and intriguing green colour, which adds to the mystery …

Raw Vegan Pumpkin Cheese

1/4 cup pumpkin seeds, soaked at least 4 hours or overnight

1 dose probiotics (I use 1 tbsp, depends on the brand you use – better use more than less)

just enough pure fresh water to blend

Rinse and drain the soaked pumpkin seeds. Blend with the probiotic powder and as little water as possible until perfectly smooth.

Transfer to a cheese cloth placed onto a sieve over a bowl. Wrap, and weight the cheese parcel down.

Leave undisturbed in a warm place for the magic to work.

After 24 to 48 hours, the cheese will be nicely fermented. Transfer to the fridge as is, or shape it into a cheese shape and dehydrate for 8 hours and 4 further hours on the other side to have a harder rind around your cheese.

Sprinkle with black pepper, eat as you please.
