Top Tips for Making Seed Cheese

  • For the absolute quickest and easiest version of this cheese, I suggest buying a bag of pre-salted, pre-seasoned sprouted seeds. We absolutely LOVE these.

  • Otherwise, simply choose to use pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds or a blend of both.

  • If using pre-seasoned, pre-salted seeds, use all ingredients minus the added seasonings and only 1/4 teaspoon salt.

  • If using plain, unsalted seeds, try any of the following flavor combinations found below and 3/4 teaspoon salt.

  • Nutritional yeast is optional, but certainly lends a cheesier flavor to this recipe.

  • Lemon juice can be used in place of apple cider vinegar.

  • If you find your blender or food processor to be less than ideal or want to ensure a smoother cheese, soak the ingredients for up to 2 hours before blending.

  • This cheese stores well in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Vegan Keto Cheese Flavor Combos

To each batch of cheese add one of the following seasoning combinations:

  • Garlic & Thyme – 2 cloves garlic, 1/2 teaspoon thyme

  • Pepper Jack – 1/4 teaspoon red chili flakes, 1 jalapeno or serrano pepper

  • Spicy Italian – 1 tsp Italian seasoning, 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, 1 garlic clove

  • Mexican Delight – 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds or ground cumin, 1/4 teaspoon oregano, 1/2 teaspoon chili powder, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, use lime juice instead of vinegar

  • You can also enjoy this cheese plain without any seasonings!

  • Some other spice ideas: curry powder, za’atar seasoning, more nutritional yeast, black peppercorns, smoked paprika.
