Sunflower Seed Cheese Wheel with Rind

My husband has been feeling some positive results from going on a fruit fast, which is wonderful. I have been feeling the benefits of eating more fruit as well, but sometimes I need a little something to go with it. So this past Friday I paired our fruit with a "cheese" wheel. This was my first attempt at a cheese with a rind, and I assume there will be many more attempts along these lines in the future!

2 cups sunflower seeds (soaked 4 to 8 hours)
1 lemon, juiced
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
2 tablespoons sauerkraut water
1 tablespoon hemp milk
1 teaspoon truffle oil
2 enzyme capsules
Celtic sea salt to taste

Drain and rinse soaked sunflower seeds. Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Pour contents into a small spring form pan. Cover the pan with a coffee filter and rubber band (paper towel or cheese cloth will work as well). Allow to sit on the counter for 24 to 48 hours. After cheese has set, undo spring form pan and carefully set cheese in the dehydrator for an additional 8 hours (this step is to make the rind, you can skip it and go without the rind if you do not have a dehydrator.)
