Macadamia cheese

macadamia cheese

It’s a little known fact that macadamias can be used to make a healthy, clean eating, vegan alternative to dairy cheese. Use it as a base for these delicious macadamia cheese chive balls – great as a tapas dish or in a delicious summer salad.

2 cups unsalted macadamias
1 litre water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 ½ teaspoons salt
pinch freshly ground black pepper
6 tablespoons water, extra


Place the macadamias in a bowl and cover with the water. Set aside for 6 hours.

Drain and rinse well and place into a food processor. Add the lemon juice, salt and pepper and blend to combine. Add the extra water and process until smooth, scraping down the sides in between processing.

Wrap the macadamia cheese in muslin and place into a colander over a bowl large enough to catch any excess liquid. Place in the fridge overnight. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
