My Horse for Cheese!
Subject: cheese substitute

The food I miss most on this (forced) vegan diet is cheese. Don't get me wrong - I went to the top rheumatologist in the country. He told me I was still improving, even after 2 1/2 years. That's hizuk to stay on the diet. But cheese was always a main part of my diet. Yogurt and cottage cheese were injested almost daily.

So today I started experimenting making a cheese spread substitute without tofu (sacrilegious, I know). The recipe I started with called for soaking 2 cups of almonds overnight and then blending them with other items to form a paste.

My intuition told me that this wouldn't work. The skins, for one thing, would give the paste a not nice color. But I always try to make a recipe once before modifying.

I came to the conclusion that I really need to make almond butter before anything (sans skins). So, I'm hoping to have a new recipe soon.

Good eating
