CHEEZ, PLEASE! Almond Pulp "Goat Cheese"

This flavorful, herbed CHEEZ was delicious atop our stuffed peppers. Another reason why that almond pulp should never go to waste!

This recipe is adapted from the Heal Your Gut Cookbook by Hilary Boynton. She's an amazing chef living in Topanga Canyon, feeding the community with her delicious, healthy, zero-waste creations! 

Take a look at that beautiful book...


What you need:

  • 2 cups almond pulp

  • 2 lemons

  • 1-2 cloves garlic (how smelly do you like your cheese?) 

  • 1/4 cup chopped, fresh herbs - we used sage and basil

  • 2 tsp sea salt

  • 1 tsp black pepper

  • 1/3 cup olive oil 

Chop up the herbs into small pieces, then add to the processor with the juice of 2 lemons, the olive oil, the sea salt and pepper. Give the processor a whirl to combine and chop a bit further.

Add in the almond pulp, one cup at a time. Process to incorporate. Add more olive oil or water as needed, but beware that adding more water will make the shelf life shorter! 

Once combined, ensure the texture is as desired. Add more almond pulp for a drier consistency, or olive oil for smoothness.

YUM! Holds in the fridge for 3 days or so, and makes enough to put atop your stuffed peppers, pasta, crackers (ahem, Pulp Pantry crackers!) and more.
