Niki’s Vegan Herbs De Provence Soft Cheese

vegancheese

 

Yes…I took the plunge and tried my hand at vegan soft cheese and you know what? It tastes bloody marvellous! It was a simple method, not overwhelming in the slightest and the cheese does go a long way as it has such a lovely strong flavour. Please give it a go, you can find agar agar on amazon along with the tapioca starch:

 

Ingredients

180g of raw cashews soaked for at least 4 hours

2 Tbsp Tapioca Starch

Up to 150ml of water

1 Tbsp Lemon Juice

1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar

2 Tbsp Coconut Oil

1.1/2 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast

1/2 Tsp of Sea Salt @steenbergsltd

1/2 Tsp of garlic powder @steenbergsltd

1 tablespoon of Herbs De Provence @steenbergsltd

 

Agar Agar Mixture:

3 Tbsp of Agar Agar Powder

1 cup of water

 

Method:

For the Agar Agar Mixture

  1. In small saucepan on medium heat, add the water and the agar agar powder  Stir the mixture for 3 to 5 minute until you get a very gooey and sticky consistency. Set it aside.

For the Soft Cheese

  1. In your blender, add the soaked cashews, tapioca starch, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, salt and pepper and water. Blend everything until smooth.
  2. Grease a ramekin (I like the coconut oil spray), then pour in your mixture. Set it in the fridge for about 3 to 5 hours, and your vegan soft cheese is ready to serve after its been adorned with Herbs De Provence, I like to add it to the sides but you can cover it completely if you wish.

You can store it in the fridge for 5 to 7 days. Enjoy it with some toast, pasta, pizza or just by itself!
