Vegan Cheese

Posted By 3FC On July 20, 2009 @ 1:36 pm In Appetizers | 6 Comments

1 1/2 cups water 
5 Tbsp. agar flakes 
1/3 cup nutritional yeast flakes 
1/2 cup macadamia nuts 
3 Tbsp. lemon juice 
1 Tbsp. tahini 
1 Tbsp. soy sauce 
1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder 
1 1/2 tsp. onion powder 
1/2 tsp. turmeric 
1/4 tsp. salt 

Cover a rounded-bottomed glass or plastic bowl with cooking spray. Set aside. Combine water and agar flakes in a pan and allow it to boil. Simmer over a slow fire and mix for about 5 minutes in order to obtain a homogenous mixture. Put the dissolved agar and the rest of the ingredients in a food processor and blend until liquefied. Transfer the resulted mixture to the cooking-spray coated glass bowl, and keep it uncovered in the refrigerator for as much as 5 days. 

Tips:

You can use vegan cheese to make grilled cheese sandwiches or vegan pizza.
Fresh ground pepper can be added, optionally.
Alternatively, you can use Sheese, soy cheese or even nut-based cheeses when following a dairy free diet.
