Sunflower Seed Cheese

SunflowerSeedCheese

I have been using seeds rather than nuts lately because finding really raw nuts is becoming more and more difficult. I'll talk about that more later this week. This cheese, that I used in my Tomato Ravioli recipe, is a sunflower seed cheese. It is not as smooth as cheeses made with cashews but has a great flavor. I used my food processor. Using the blender rather than a food processor will help make it smoother.
