Pumpkin Seed Cheese

Art Raw Paulina
This is a beautiful Wasabi Pumpkin Seed Cheese recipe I was given and I have tweaked it a bit to simplify. For the full recipe follow the author link.
Prep Time 14 hrs
Course dips and chutneys
Servings 4


  • Bowl, Strainer, Cheese Cloth or muslin cloth
  • Food processor or Whiz Blender


  • 70 gm Organic Pumpkin Seed Soaked for 8 hours, do this first thing.
  • 150 gm Distilled Water
  • 1/4 tsp Himilayan Salt
  • 5 gm Organic nutritional yeast optional
  • 1/8 tsp 16 Strain Probiotic Powder
  • 40 gm Organic Pine or Almond nuts
  • few Fresh sprigs of organic coriander Optional
  • few drops Plasmatic essential minerals optional, but recommended for higher mineral content.


  • Making the cheese, you will need cheese cloth or muslin, a food processor or whiz blender.
    Blend together the pumpkin seeds, salt and distilled water and nutritional yeast until almost smooth. (It's fine if it is a bit grainy).
  • Next add the 1/8 tsp 16 Strain probiotic powder, coriander leaves and blend for a few more seconds.
  • On a large strainer add a few layers of the muslin or cheese cloth, place over a bowl and add in the cheese, cover with cheese/muslin cloth. Now add on top of that a plate for a little added weight to compress the cheese. Press slightly.
  • Leave the cheese in room tep (20-25c) for 24 hours or warmer place for 8-12 hours. the cheese will start the fermentation process during this time. (You use a dehydrator initally, if you have one for 4 hours at 40°C) and then a further 8 hours in a warm place.
  • After this fermentation process is complete I strained some of the liquid out, so it's not too runny. (Leave a little in to keep moist) Add in the ground pine or almonds and mix together. Cheese complete!


As per the original recipe, other ingredients are used, which I chose not to use in the case.
I did however, make up a wasabi sauce and added a smidge in for a little bite. I love Wasbai.  Don't add too much, as it can take away the flavour of the pumpkin seed.
