    Almond Feta Cheese
    1 cup raw almonds, soaked & skins removed
    1/4 cup lemon juice
    1 clove garlic
    1  tsp sea salt
    1/4 cup olive oil
    1 Tbs fresh thyme
    1 Tbs fresh rosemary

    Soak almonds in water overnight.  Peel almond skins off of almonds by squeezing almonds in between fingers.  Puree peeled almonds, lemon juice, 3 T olive oil, garlic, salt and 1/2 cup water in blender or food processor for 5 minutes or until really creamy.  Place a triple layer of cheesecloth in strainer and spoon almond mixture onto cheesecloth (or place in a nut milk bag). Bring sides together twist into an orange-sized ball and secure with a twist tie. Chill for several hours.  Take out of cheese cloth & form into a 6”  round of cheese, about 3/4 inch thick & place on plate (or you can dehydrate it for 4-6 hours to harden it up).  Combine 1-2 Tbs olive oil with herbs & drizzle over your cheese ball.  Serve with veggies, crackers or cut up for on top of salad.

    YUMMMMM!
