Vegan Cheese Recipes
Vegan cheese has come a long way over the years! Old school dairy free cheeses meant plasticky store bought vegan cheese or cheese sauce made with nutritional yeast.
Modern recipes call for culturing the cheese, typically made from raw cashews, to achieve a sharp, tangy flavor similar to dairy cheese. Many store bought vegan cheeses use this method, making all kinds of cheese available on the market from mozzarella to Parmesan.
While store bought vegan cheese is delicious, there are many types of gourmet cheeses you can make at home. Since it will require culturing, it can also be a fun project.
If you'd like to delve into the world of making cultured or aged vegan cheese, you'll need to start by making Rejuvelac, a probiotic liquid that can be used to culture vegan cheese. A good first recipe to try is Cultured Cashew Cheese Spread.
Once you've mastered vegan cheese, make a fancy vegan cheese board!
