Zucchini cheese. Seriously. Cheese made from zucchini. I kid you not! A couple days ago I happened to see an Instagram post which purported to show non-dairy, nut-free, and soy-free “cheese” made from zucchini.
As I am progressing through this month of a paleo reset, I’m realizing that I feel a lot better when I don’t eat dairy. But as a proud “cheesehead,” it was breaking my Wisconsin-born heart to accept it. Then all of a sudden, Instagram gives me this beacon of hope in the darkness. I knew I had to get to the bottom of the “zucchini cheese” story.
I was still skeptical, but whipped up my own batch of zucchini cheese this morning and posted my own Instagram pic.
I asked the recipe originator if it would be OK to share it with all of you you and she graciously agreed.
Notes on healing diets:
This recipe is acceptable for people who are following virtually all healing diet, including The Paleo Approach/Paleo Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) and the low-FODMAP diet. Nutritional yeast is not specifically legal or illegal on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), so I suggest omitting it to be on the safe side.
Notes on ingredients:
- Shop AIP is a great source for organic coconut oil and other paleo/primal foodstuffs.
- Any type of gelatin will work, but I suggest Great Lakes Unflavored Beef Gelatinbecause it is made from grass fed cows.
