Catching up...

Raw Nacho Macadamia Nut Cheese
I still have an abundance of nuts in my freezer leftover from my bulk order this summer. I spent around $300 or so at the beginning of my 30 day raw challenge. The Macadamia are good in cheeses and other raw food, but I prefer cashews. That being said, this cheese is still delicious and I've been making a batch a week or so. This was a Nacho Cheese like spread spiced with lime juice, smoked paprika and fresh serrano chiles. I use this in collard wraps, thinned out on a salad for dressing and as a sour cream substitute. It is super delicious in my Chipotle Citrus Black Bean Soup and it totally passes the kid/ex factor.

Jerk Seitan Quesadillas with Tropical Salsa

I had a Personal Chef gig a while back and made these delicious quesadillas as part of an appetizer for a Martini Party. The Jerk Sauce was sweet/spicy and tangy. Just like it should be and tropical flavors of mango, pineapple, habanero, red pepper and other spices really complimented the seitan.

  6. I adore nut cheeses. I just wish macadamia nuts weren't so darn expensive. I usually stick with the cashews for that reason ... though cashews are awesome too.
