Makes about 1 1/4 cups
1 cup coarsely chopped raw walnuts
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
1/2 teaspoon ground sea salt, or to taste
In a small bowl, mix the walnuts, nutritional yeast, and salt together. In batches, if necessary, grind the mixture in a coffee grinder dedicated to ingredients other than coffee. Grind for 8 to 10 seconds per batch. Don’t overgrind the mixture.
Transfer the mixture to a tightly covered container and refrigerate.
The cheese will keep in a tightly covered container, refrigerated, for about 1 week, assuming the walnuts are fairly fresh.
Tip: Nutritional yeast can be found in the bulk bins at your local Whole Foods or other health-oriented supermarket, or online from a variety of sources.
All figures are per tablespoon, or about 1/20 of a recipe.
