I came across the idea to do a cheese log from a post in my newsfeed a few weeks ago and I got so excited about this keto thermomix recipe that I came up with a handful of different flavour combinations right away (see the notes). I think this will make a yummy and colourful addition to Christmas tables for those who want to continue to watch their carbs over the festive season or to impress guests with something a little different.
The testing team have been enjoying this one way too much!
Add nuts and herbs to mixer bowl, chop for 3 sec/speed 6/MC on or until finely chopped.
Add nigella seeds, sesame seeds and pepper to the bowl. Mix for 5 sec/speed 2/MC on.
Remove nut mixture to a piece of the gladwrap retaining 1 Tbsp in the mixer bowl. Flatten the mixture out with your hands into a large rectangle.
Add remaining ingredients and blend for 10 sec/speed 6/MC on. Scrape bowl down and repeat once.
Spoon even amounts of cheese mixture in a line down the centre of the nut mixture. Using the gladwrap, form into a log and twist the ends of each side tightly to remove air and compress mixture. Tie off ends, apply second piece of gladwrap and refrigerate for 1 hour or until ready to serve.
Different combinations you could try: Apricot & Almond Smoked Salmon & Dill + Capers Sweet Chilli & Coriander Olives, Garlic & Herbs Bellini Users Use your sharp blade for this recipe. At step 1 chop for longer if necessary to get a fine texture.
