Brazil Cheese

Homemade nut cheese can be a great addition to your diet.  While I am a huge fan of dairy some people can not tolerate it, you may want extra protein and nutrients (Brazil nuts are high in selenium and Vit E) or you may just want to try something new.

I love this on seed bread, crackers, with veggie crudités, adding it to stir fry veggies or a dip with kumara fries.
