Raw vegan almond & zaatar cheese

New Year’s Eve  is around the corner and what a better time to think about a few health recipes to add to all the goodies you will be having. I know it’s not really the time of the year when low-fat dishes are on our mind, but if you are a little concerned with the calorie intake, you can easily swap a few dishes with healthier options.

I am sharing a beautiful tasty and yummy recipe for a raw vegan almond & zaatar cheese spread. It is rich in protein but low in fat and is simply delicious on crackers, sourdough bread or baguette.
