To soak the nuts

Nut mixture

In a food processor, puree the nuts, lemon zest and juice, nutritional yeast, water, garlic powder and salt to create a smooth, homogeneous mass. Place a sieve over a bowl, line with a cheese cloth. Transfer the nut mixture to the cloth, fold in the corners of the cloth and weigh down (e.g. with bowls or tin cans). Cover and place in the fridge for approx. 12 hrs. or overnight.

To complete

Carefully remove the mass from the cloth, sprinkle with the herbs.
