Recipe Directions

for the base:

In a high speed blender, combine all ingredients. Blend until smooth.

Place an adequate amount of cheese cloth in a mason jar, and secure with outer ring lid (takes a bit of force). Scoop mixture into cheese cloth and let sit in a warm/dark place for 24-48 hours – I use my microwave to store the jar.

After 24-48 hours, the excess liquid will have drained from the nut cheese. Scoop mixture out into separate bowl.

for the mix in:

Fold all ingredients in fermented cheese. Mix well by hand.

for the assembly:

Using a ring mold, scoop mixture into ring and place in freezer for about 10 minutes. Once set, remove ring, drizzle with olive oil and garnish with fresh herbs.

Oh yes, you could use just about any nut (the creamier nuts will yield better results though) Macadamias would be lovely!

I'm pretty sure they are only using the microwave turned OFF as a place to store the jar while it ferments where it will be out of the way and not attract bugs.

I live in Costa Rica and am wondering if you could substitute another nut for the Brazil nut... can't get them here. How about macadamia?

Yes, Maeven is correct. The microwave is NOT turned on - I just put it there as it's dark and away from fruit flies.
