Preparation:

  1. Place almonds in a bowl and cover with 8 cm of tab water.
  2. Let them soak for about 24 hours (you should change water if it becomes cloudy).
  3. Drain the soaked almonds and rinse twice with cold running water.
  4. Remove skins.
  5. Puree almonds in a food processor.
  6. Add the water – lemon juice mix, 3 tbsp oil, green pepper, garlic, salt, and 1/2 cup of cold water in the food processor  for about 6 minutes, or until it becomes a soft and creamy mixture.
  7. Place a large strainer over a bowl and spread a triple layer of muslin (cheesecloth).
  8. Flatten the mixture of almonds in cheesecloth.
  9. Join the corners and sides of the fabric together, and turn around the cheese to form a ball and pushing to help eliminate unnecessary moisture.
  10. Place in the fridge for about 3 hours.
