  • 1 c. (6 oz.) pine nuts, soaked 2 hours

Make this portion ahead, even a day ahead, to allow the cheese flavours to develop.  Drain and rinse pine nuts. Blend all ingredients in a Vita-Mix until creamy. You can pop this in the fridge while making the rest of the ingredients, or allow to sit on the counter for 24 hours if you want to start to let it ferment.
