Making vegan cheese is not as hard as it may seem. It tastes very similar to cheese and has the same satisfying texture. There are many plant based cheese brands out there these days; Daiya, Follow Your Heart, Miyoko’s, Field Roast Chao, Go Veggie, etc. Follow the link for a list. Most of them are available at supermarkets, Whole Foods and health food stores, and others you can order online. I’ve also been to restaurants that make their own cultured vegan cheeses that were so spot on. The vegan cheese options will only be getting better and better. Miyoko’s Creamery really is an incredible source to see what is being done with plant based cheeses.
The base for vegan cheeses is usually nuts, cashews particularly. Many of the packaged vegan cheeses in the supermarkets will have an oil base with a starch. They melt and tear just like regular cheese. Nutritional yeast flakes commonly used when making homemade cheeses.
I use a precise blend of ingredients that makes a thick cheese great for dipping, spreading, and as a sauce. It is very thick, rich in flavor, and strong like cheddar.
Nutritional yeast flakes (sometimes called nooch) are very popular among vegans. It’s what grated cheese is to non vegans. Many of us use these yellow flakes to top our savory dishes and it adds a rich and almost nutty cheese like flavor. They are grown from sugarcane and beets and have been a staple health food for many years. You can find them at health food stores, Whole Foods, online, and most markets. Not to be confused with baking yeast or brewers yeast, these are a condiment.
These flakes pack more than flavor. They are immune boosting, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, loaded with B vitamins, protein, and minerals. Also helps lower cholesterol, nourishes hair, skin, and nails, improves digestion, prevents cancer, improves metabolism, balances blood sugar, promotes brain health, helps build muscle, and increases overall vitality. It is great for those with malnutrition or looking to get a potent nutritional food source. And, it will not lead to candida but will strengthen your body to fight intestinal imbalances.
