Zaatar-cheese with a twist

The twist: cauliflower crust!

1. CRUST

Ingredients

Half a head of cauliflower

½ cup chickpea flour

2 tbsp flax meal

6 tbsp water

1 tbsp nutritional yeast

1 tbsp olive oil

¼ tsp sea salt

Method

Chop the cauliflower into small florets and steam till you can just pierce with a fork, then let cool.

Add cauliflower to a food processor till fine, then transfer to a nut milk bag or place in fine cheesecloth, and gently press out all of the excess water.

Meanwhile, add the 6 tablespoons water to the flax meal in a small bowl and let stand for 5 minutes (this is your egg replacer).

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and use your hands to work them together into a dough.

Let stand for 15 minutes to allow flax and chickpea flour to absorb any remaining water.

Line a pizza tray with baking paper, and press dough evenly over the surface.

Bake for 20 minutes.

2.Vegan cheese

Ingredients

1/2 cup soaked cashew

2 tbsp psyllium husk

1 tsp sea salt

2 tbsp lemon juice

Method

1. In a bowl, combine the psyllium husk with the water. Mix well until having a gel texture.

2. Add the psyllium husk gel and the strained cashew as well as the remaining ingredients to your food processor. Blend well. It will look like a large ball of dough.

3. You can use a baking ring or a mug to shape it as you like.
