We believe that Cheese is very healthy.
But store bought cheese is processed cheese.
And like any other processed food,
it has chemicals and preservatives.
So come, let’s make a ‘Healthy Cheese Spread’
without any preservatives and chemicals.
For the cheese, we need just one ingredient
and that is Cashew nuts.
I have soaked these cashew nuts overnight
and now let’s grind them.
I have used cashew nut pieces.
We have to grind them anyway so
big cashews aren’t required.
These are comparatively cheaper.
Add some water to it.
Now, we are at the most difficult part of
this recipe, which is to turn this knob.
Our cashew nut paste is ready.
Transfer it to a glass jar.
Make sure you don’t add more than
2-3 tbsp of water, otherwise it will be watery.
Now, don’t close the jar tightly,
just let the lid cover it.
And keep it aside and allow it to ferment.
If the temperature is high it will take 8 hours
or in cold temperature it takes 12 hours.
So ferment this as per your weather.
I have already kept fermented cashew ready.
To this, we’ll add 1 tsp salt.
And mix it well.
Our cheese is ready.
But, I’m making another variation for you
and that is ‘Herb Cheese”.
For herb cheese, we have
our fermented cheese.
To that, we’ll add some garlic.
A good amount of black pepper.
And mixed Italian herbs.
This has red chilly flakes, oregano,
Mix all this well.
Our herb cheese is ready.
Both our types of cheese spread are ready.
You can use these as dips, or in sandwiches
or just spread it on bread.
It can also be used in baked dishes.
If you need more motivation, flip the box
of cheese at home and read it’s ingredients.
After that, decide which cheese
you’d like to eat.
