Vegan Cheese

Vegan Cheese


  • 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


  1. Cover a rounded-bottomed glass or plastic bowl with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Combine water and agar flakes in a pan and allow it to boil.
  3. 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.
  4. Transfer the resulted mixture to the cooking-spray coated glass bowl, and keep it uncovered in the refrigerator for as much as 5 days.
  5. You can use vegan cheese to make grilled cheese sandwiches or vegan pizza.
  6. Fresh ground pepper can be added, optionally.
  7. Alternatively, you can use Sheese, soy cheese or even nut-based cheeses when following a dairy free diet.
