Walnut and Black Pepper Vegan Cheese
Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 10 mins
Total time: 15 mins
  • ½ cup of soaked cashews
  • 3 tsp agar agar powder
  • 2 tbsp tapioca flour
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cup of unsweetened plant milk of your choice (I used almond milk)
  • 1½ tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1-2 tsp salt
  • lots of black pepper
  • ½ cup of walnuts
  • 2-3 tbsp mixed dried herbs*
  1. Start by toasting walnuts, then chopping them roughly.
  2. Add soaked cashews, agar agar, tapioca flour, nutritional yeast, water, milk, vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper to a blender and blend until completely smooth.
  3. Transfer to a sauce pan and heat over medium heat. Stir constantly until it will start to form a gooey cheese sauce. It takes 3-5 minutes.
  4. Cook and stir on for an other 2-5 minutes until it firms up completely.
  5. Add walnuts to the cheesy mixture and mix in roughly.
  6. Pour mixture into molds. Place them in fridge to set for about 2 hours.
  7. Once it set remove cheese from molds and roll in the herbs. Enjoy!
*You can also use nuts or black pepper to coat the cheese if you don't want to use the herbs.
