Raw Dairy Free Cheddar Cheese

Well, I made the cheese, this is actually the second block I made.
Here are the pics. Have to say, my youngest son, James LOVES this cheese and he is a fussy eater.

A home made block of dairy free chedder cheese

This cheese can be sliced, grated and even melted, could it possibly get any better than this? A raw cheese the tastes like cheese and does everything cheese does.

This is THE book that I got the recipe from. There are many cheeses in this book i.e. mozzarella, boursin, feta etc etc

Agar Agar cooled to 115°F

To make the cheese set the recipe states to use Agar Agar which is used in the raw food world BUT Agar Agar has to be boiled and simmered. I boiled and simmered the Agar Agar but then to keep the recipe raw I allowed it to cool to 115°F before adding the other ingredients so it wouldn't cook anything.
I also had to use tomato paste/pureƩ so instead of using this I soaked a couple of sundried tomatoes overnight. The next day I drained them and chopped them very fine and blitzed them with my stick blender and then used the 2tb in the vitamix as stated in the recipe.

Here is a You Tube video of Matt making this cheese which is where I found it and so I bought the book to make the cheese correctly myself.

Let me know if you make this recipe and what you think?! It's FAB!

I juiced some oranges last night and poured it into a jug and put it in the fridge ready for this morning. I noticed that I didn't have any almond milk made and I wanted some for my breakfast in the morning so I put some almonds in soaking in some spring water from my Eva water filter...I LOVE that filter!! this morning I made the almond milk and I had oats with 5 dates and almond milk for my breakfast....YUM! I then had a glass of orange juice, banana and 2 chlorella tablets. For lunch today I am thinking of having strawberries blended with more dates (constipated, you wanted to know that) then I am going to pour this over fresh figs and more strawberries...DEEELICOUS! I have had this before and it is very nice. I will try and remember where I got this recipe from and I will let you know, actually, I think I have alread mentioned this recipe on a previous blog post.
