Paneer, sans packaging
October 23, 2008
Say cheese! Then, curdle up with a homemade batch, thanks to this paneer recipe from The Kitchn, Apartment Therapy’s cooking offshoot. Sounds simple enough: All you need is milk, lemon juice (or another acidic liquid, I would imagine), some cheesecloth, and a colander.
You won’t get the taste of cave-aged cheddar, nor will you find yourself snacking on creamy brie, but you will get a light, slightly crumbly fresh cheese to sprinkle on salads, cube for curries, or add to fajitas. The beauty part? You know exactly what’s going into your queso (and, by extension, your tummy), and you avoid plastic packaging.
