Dairy Free "Cream Cheese"

Ingredients

  • 180 g pine nuts
  • 180 g sunflower seeds
  • 160 g lemon juice
  • 3/4 tsp whole black peppercorns (optional)
  • 3 cloves garlic, (or less, to taste)
  • 1 3/4 tsp sea salt

Recipe's preparation

  1. Pre-soak the pine nuts and sunflower seeds overnight (or for a few hours) in water with a squeeze of lemon juice.

    Place all ingredients in Thermomix and
    turn dial to speed 8, using spatula to push it down into the
    blades while mixing. Takes about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes to mix until smooth. You may need to add a little water so it blends more
    easily if you haven't soaked the seeds. Blend until you get a super
    smooth texture.

    I use this as a dip with crackers or vege sticks, as a substitute for sour cream, as a sandwich spread, or even as a cheese replacement for a pizza topping - just spread it on a cooked base and top with raw chopped veges, olives, etc. (See photo)

Tip

If you haven't remembered to soak the seeds & pine nuts, you can still make this - just add a little water until it reaches the texture you like.  But it's better if you do soak them, as it makes it easier to digest.

  • Yes, you can just use

    Yes, you can just use blanched almonds instead of pine nuts! That's the variation I generally do now - have a look on my website at the updated cream cheese recipe :) I also make a lot of different dairy free pizza toppings, and will be posting my recipe for cheese free pizza scrolls soon - they're yummy!! :)

  • I've just realised my newborn

    Submitted by ThermoNic on 27. June 2012 - 20:49.

    I've just realised my newborn doesnt agree with dairy (via my breastmilk), so I'm looking for dairy free recipes etc. Stumbled across your recipe, which sounds great - as I was wondering how I would get toppings to stick to pizzas etc (going to REALLY miss that cheesey taste for awhile!). I'm also allergic to pine nuts, so just wondering if you have any suggestions of what I could replace the pine nuts with... if anything? Cheers, Nic
