Yum, Homemade Vegan Cheese!

Pin It

I had been wanting to venture into making a firm cheese at home for awhile now. The cheeses I make are of the sauce or dip variety and are delish, but I wanted to try something new.
I saw this cheese recipe on Vegangela's blog and knew I would be making it soon. It's alot simpler than other recipes I've seen and I already had all the ingredients on hand. Well, everything except almond milk, but I had raw almonds, so I quickly made some. The recipe calls for soy milk, but I wanted to use almond.
I'm so glad I made this and was blown away by it's flavor! Why haven't I been making my own hard cheese all along?? The flavor possibilities are endless and I will definitely be experimenting more!

I halved the original recipe from Ann Gentry and then took a third of what I had and added about 1tbs chopped sundried tomatoes and about 5 large basil leaves(chiffonade cut). I used a saran wrap lined tea cup for the sundried tomato/basil one and a lined bowl for the regular one. I was glad I listened to Vegangela and worked fast, because it does start to set quickly!

I un-molded the tea cup and put it on the platter. For the bigger one, I cut it down into a block first and sliced some of it.

It slices really smooth and has such a wonderful texture! You can pick the slice up and eat it or smear it on a cracker or apple slice.

Since making this cheese, I've tried using it on a pizza as well as melting it on a cracker in the mic. Both ways worked well!

  1. Great post! It looks so beautiful all plated up and I'm happy to hear that you were able to use my little tips and tricks. I love your flavor combinations! I think it's time for me to make more of this, it only lasted a couple days here, and as I said in my comment back to you on my post, my cheese-lover fiance loved it too. The tea cup looks to be the perfect size for a little cheese ball - I will have to keep that in mind for next time. Seriously, I can't believe how easy this is and I'm so upset with myself for not trying it like 10 years ago!

  2. This is great, your blog is a vegan delight to read! thank you for sharing!

  3. Thanks Angela :)
