Sunflower Seed Cheese

Well, I was worried about my brother and his family living in Joshua Tree, CA. The fires were so close that they had to evacuate to a hotel! Luckily their house, set way back in the desert, was unharmed. They took themselves off to Hawaii to celebrate! And they got to swim with the dolphins!

Recipe of the Day – Sunflower Seed Cheese


2 c. (sprouted) sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds

1 c. pine nuts

1/4 c. chopped bell pepper

1 “/2.5 cm piece ginger, peeled

2 cloves garlic
1 tsp. dried oregano
1/4 c. fresh basil
1/4 c. Coconut Aminos/Braggs to taste

Combine all in a blender with enough water to cover. Start blender,
adding more water to produce a very thick creamy liquid. Pour into a
sprout bag and squeeze out liquid. You are left with the cheese.
The remaining liquid becomes a dressing with the addition of fresh minced herbs and a little more aminos, a touch of raw agave or honey and a dash of water. To thicken the dressing, blend in some tahini.

Word of the Day – queso – cheese

Tip of the Day –Sunflower seeds abound here, so its great to use them as stuffing for celery, mushrooms, cucumber boats, etc. You can make this into a sweet cheese by eliminating last five ingredients and adding dates with cinnamon instead. Yummy!
