Native Sandalwood Nut & Cashew Cheese with Kakadu Plum & Mountain Pepperberry + Roasted Wattleseed & Saltbush
This week we’re sharing two great tasting nut cheese recipes in one. Our native Sandalwood Nut & Cashew Cheese recipe is a great, versatile nut cheese base that combines beautifully with many different flavour combinations. We’ve taken half the mixture and added native Kakadu Plum & Mountain Pepperberry and to the other half have added Roasted Wattleseed & Old Man Saltbush.
These nut cheese combinations make a great starter, served with toasted crispy baguette croutons or vegetable crudités. You’re vegan friends will love it!
