Vegan Italian almond classic Formaggetta recipe

Vegan Italian almond Formaggetta 

This formaggetta born by chance. After preparing for the first time the almond milk, I found myself with the okkara. What to do? Mumble mumble ... the addition of salt and flavorings and away in the oven. What a surprise, it was excellent! 


300 g white almonds, not roasted 
1 liter of water 
sea ​​salt 
spices to taste (thyme, sage, mint, dill, chives, cumin, garlic, etc.). 
extra virgin olive oil 


Combine almonds with water and let them soften for at least 30 minutes (in the refrigerator overnight). Blend the almonds with the soaking water, you put in a pot, add 1 pinch of salt and bring to a boil while stirring. Filtered off and the milk through a sieve with a mesh tight or covered with a cloth or a gauze. Squeeze the pulp well. The milk you get is preserved in the refrigerator 4-5 days and should be shaken well before use. Mix the pulp remaining after filtering with the spices of your choice and 1 pinch of salt. 

Transfer the mixture into a mold and squeeze it well and put in refrigerator for 1 hour. Remove the stencil from the cottage cheese and put it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper lightly oiled. Ungi well even the entire surface of formaggetta, with the help of a kitchen brush or even with the fingers. Bake in oven at 160 ° for 20-30 minutes. It keeps in the refrigerator for 2-3 days, but I do not think that will last so long ... my house has been brushed in 10 minutes;) 

To prepare a super almond milk is better to start from fresh almonds in shell. And 'more complicated and tedious, but the difference is abysmal. In this case, after having shelled almonds with holy patience, you have to keep them to soak overnight to facilitate the removal of the peel. At that point, rubbing the almonds between your fingers peel it off easily. After removing the peel proceed to blend with the water, continuing with the recipe. The pulp made ​​after the filtering can also be used in other ways, for example, you can add the dough for cookies. So do not throw! :)
