Simple Cheeseball

Ian, my sweet helper of  9 years old, has been begging me to make cheeseball with him. Here is the recipe we came up with in the kitchen together.

(serves enough for 5 ever – hungry little boys)

Simple Cheeseball

Ingredients:

  • 1 package of organic cream cheese (we use Nancy’s)
  • 3 – 4 cups organic cheese (we used cheddar, preferably raw since we aren’t cooking it)
  • dash of organic sriracha
  • dash of organic soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • 1/4 finely chopped onion
  • 3 dried (organic) figs, diced as small as possible (I gave him the option of figs or green olives)
  • 1 cup ground walnuts

Method:

  1. Find an apprentice to help you grate the cheese.
  2. Place cream cheese in mixing bowl.
  3. Chop all ingredients.
  4. Have your buddy add each ingredient one at a time, while he/she mixes in between each new addition.
  5. Have your helper put the walnuts into small blender and grind them up into fine pieces.
  6. Spread the chopped walnuts on a plate.
  7. Use a spoon or spatula to scoop the cheese glop into a ball shape.
  8. Use your hands to roll and shape the cheeseball around in the walnuts on the plate.
  9. Enjoy with some crackers – we used Simple Mills; but it also goes great with sourdough crackers as well!

Get those kids in the kitchen! Teaching them about real food in the kitchen reaps so many amazing results – you’re demonstrating how important using real ingredients are; you’re taking the TIME to show them how to make nourishing food – expressing that food isn’t a rush – rush after thought – it’s meant to be enjoyed, savored, and nourish our bodies; you’re teaching them to serve others in love by creating delicious, quality dishes that everyone can enjoy; and so much more. I pray that God richly blesses your efforts in training up the next generation in truth and love for His glory.
