Made the vegan cheese tonight. My son thought it was cheddar cheese. My younger didn’t think it looked right so he didn’t try it but my mom loved it. I’ll have to experiment with the nutritional yeast and maybe I’ll use Rotel in it. Thanks for giving me a starting place.
Do the cashews and almonds need to be soaked first?
I’m vegetarian and trying to be vegan..this recipe just perfect ! Tomorrow my blender arrive…can’t wait to try.
No, they can go in raw!
They will powder up at first, but keep blending and scraping the sides. The oils will start to release and help to make it into a thick paste. There are some great recipes on here that give more ideas :)
