Turmeric-Almond Baked "Cheese" (Fights Inflammation!) Hero Image

Great as a spread  or a healthy dip, it’s a favorite snack that gets the creamy cravings out of the way.

Important Note: If you want to make this fabulous recipe, you’ll need to soak the almonds overnight, so make sure you do that the night before!  The mixture then needs to be refrigerated overnight!

Serves 2


  • 1 cup raw almonds, skin removed
  • 1/2 lemon, unpeeled
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 tsp. ground turmeric
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • rosemary to garnish


1. Blend all ingredients until creamy and thick.

2. Transfer your mixture into a nut bag (or 3 layers of cheese cloth), put into a strainer, and place over a bowl.

3. Refrigerate overnight, then unwrap and put in a dish greased with oil.

4. Bake for 40 minutes at 170°C.
