I love, love, LOVE this dish! Filling a bagel with this walnut cheese makes a perfect filling lunch! This is what you will need:
1 cup walnut pieces
4 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
A little cold water
Here’s how you do it:
Soak your walnuts for a couple of hours, or as long as you can spare, but at least 20 minutes. Drain and rinse.
Place all the ingredients apart from the water in a food processor or blender. Blend and keep scraping down the sides. Add a little cold water to help with the consistency of the walnut cheese. Keep processing and scraping down the sides. It will be ready when it’s well combined but still firm.
Tip the mix into a glass dish and refrigerate. Whatever you do DON’T be tempted to eat it straightaway. Honestly, it tastes way better if the flavours have had a chance to combine for 24 hours! Try it and you will see what I mean.
All the best!
