Greenghost's ThoughtsBy greenghost
I thought I would post a version of seed cheese with pumpkin seeds as the main ingredient. (There is also a nice Lime Pumpkin Seed Pate by jim97ro.)
This won’t be a thin or runny cheese – i.e., there may be tiny bits of pumpkin seeds remaining, but it should be fairly smooth.
Remember to adjust spices to taste.
This recipe should last 3 to 4 days in the fridge.
PS: Just a suggestion, if you want this recipe to be a bit creamier then you may wish to grind your pumpkin seeds in a coffee grinder before tossing them in the food processor with everything else.
