Macadamia Nut Cheese Spread…

I was looking for some thing that I could spread onto my flax seed crackers that wasn’t avocado so I came up with this.

In a small blender put, 100g Macadamia nuts, 4 tablespoons of nutritional yeast and some salt and pepper to taste. Blend the mix till it is a fine powder that should start to stick together when pushed with your finger. Macadamia nuts are somewhat oily and will stick together, if it doesn’t then add a little water and try again.
Put Macadamia cheese in a pot and push down to firm it up but whatever you do don’t put it in the fridge as it dries out.

You could add chives or some other fresh herbs to make it a bit different, but I would say try it plain first. I was shocked how nice this was I could have eaten it as I made it so you may want to have some more nuts in your food store…
