This is a great base cheese. I say base because you can add your flavors and spices, making it perfect for you palate and needs. This recipe is from the raw culinary school I attended. Living Light Culinary Art Institute. The magical ingredient used to make a raw cheese taste cheesy is the probiotics. There are other techniques in making raw cheeses but probiotics offer the easiest. You will find probiotics at your local grocery store in the cooler section. Most recipes require anywhere from 1/4 to 1 teaspoon. You will need to open the capsules and tap out the powder. Keep the open bottle in your fridge.
Yields: 2 cups (6-8 servings)
Probiotics are bacteria that help maintain the natural balance of organisms (microflora) in the intestines. The normal human digestive tract contains about 400 types of probiotic bacteria that reduce the growth of harmful bacteria and promote a healthy digestive system. The largest group of probiotic bacteria in the intestine is lactic acid bacteria, of which Lactobacillus acidophilus, found in yogurt, is the best known. Yeast is also a probiotic substance. Probiotics are also available as dietary supplements.
