Smoked Baked Almond Feta

This recipe comes courtesy of Maple Spice. This is great for eating alone or crumbling onto dishes. It has a cheesy baked bread taste.

Smoked Baked Almond Feta


145g ground almonds (1 1/2 cups)
1 Tbsp liquid smoke
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup water


Simply add everything to a blender and blend until thick and really creamy - a few minutes is fine. 
Line a bowl with three layers of cheesecloth and scrape the mixture into it. 
Tie the cheesecloth up into a ball and place in a colander over a bowl and refrigerate overnight. 

The next day, preheat the oven to 200C and remove the cheese from the cloth and place in an oven proof dish. The cheese stays a bit soft at this stage and you may have to scrape some in. 

Bake for 30 - 40 minutes, or until golden, firm to the touch and cracking a bit on top. 
Leave to cool on a wire rack.
