Vegan Cheese

Making vegan cheese is not that complicated. 
Especially if it doesn't require fermentation. 

 

In this blog, I'd like to share a simple yet tasty vegan cheese recipe.
Here are the tools and ingredients you'll need. 


Soy Milk. 
Pure Soy milk with simple ingredients (Soy and water!) is the best. 
Lemon Juice

Natural Salt

Cheese cloth
I
t is good to have a tight weave cloth and not the muslin cloths for this cheese.

 

Saucepan

Spatula

Use a heat resistant spatula to mix the soy milk in the pot.

Mixing Bowls  

...And a sieve!


Once you have that all, let's get started!

  3. Prepare a sieve, bowl and the cheesecloth and pour the mixture onto the cloth. The Whey will start to drip down to the bowl in below.

  5. You can keep squeezing it or let is sit on the sieve for about an hour to let drain. What you get in the cheesecloth will be your vegan cottage cheese! 
    Season it with some salt and serve or use it in recipes.

    You can keep this cheese in the fridge for about 5 days or freeze it upto 3 months. 
    For the whey, you can use it in soups or stews. It will create a nice flavor.
