step 3

To a food processor or a blender, add the cooked sunflower seeds, alongside the rest of the ingredients. Blend on high until creamy and smooth.

step 4

Then, transfer the mixture into a container and let it set in the fridge for 6-8 hours. You can serve it right away, but the texture is way better after the cheese has had the time to firm up.


Some optional ingredients you can add for more flavor: garlic, fresh herbs, green onion, chives, sun-dried tomatoes, etc.

Be patient when blending. To get a creamy consistency you'll need to keep blending for at least a couple of minutes.
