Ingredients


2 1/3 cup whole Almonds, raw (soaked and skins removed; see 'Advanced Preparations')
1/2 cup Water, filtered
1/4 cup Lemon juice
1/2 cup drained Sauerkraut (white cabbage; not the wine kind!)
1/4 cup whole Green olives (just the brine)
1/2 cup Coconut oil (melted; refined will provide a cleaner flavour; but virgin works if you don't mind a coconut flavour)
2 tsp Sea salt, fine

Instructions


For baked version, preheat oven to 400ºF (skip this step for raw version)

Line a bread loaf pan with parchment paper.

Blend all ingredients in a blender until as smooth as possible. If your blender is not high-speed, you may need to add extra liquid (if you end up adding over 1/4 cup extra liquid, add 1 extra tablespoon each of lemon juice and coconut oil)

Pour this mixture into the parchment lined loaf pan.

For raw version: you can use it in a recipe immediately or refrigerate for 1 hour to firm up for easier slicing.

For baked version: bake the almond feta for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until nicely browned on top.
