Vegan Almond Feta Cheese

This looks interesting, without the bread, of course. 

Baked Almond Feta:
145g ground almonds (about 1 1/2 cups)
60ml lemon juice (1/4 cup)
1/2 cup water (4 fl oz)
3 Tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/4 tsp salt

Simply place everything there in a blender and blitz until super creamy and smooth. Mine took only a few minutes. Stop and scrape down if need be.

Now line a small bowl with 3 layers of cheesecloth:

Spoon the mixture into the cheesecloth:

Now bring all the sides of the cheesecloth together and tie into a ball, I just use a rubber band. Then place the ball in a strainer and place over a bowl:

Now just place it all in the fridge for about 12 hours. I have made this in the morning and baked it off in the evening or I just leave it overnight and bake it off the next day. After the 12 hours there will be a bit of liquid that has drained off:

If you are using the same dish, wash out the drained liquid and I like to give the dish a dusting of cooking spray to ensure it comes out easily:

Preheat the oven to 180C (LCL Note: if my conversion is correct, this is about 350 degrees on my oven) and unwrap the cheese from the cloth:

...and transfer to the greased baking dish or a lined baking sheet smooth side up:

 Bake for about 40 minutes or until slightly golden and cracked on top and firm to the touch:

Now just leave to cool in the dish then it's ready to be transferred to a serving plate or used in a recipe! Enjoy!
