Vegan Cheese Recipe
Hard vegan cheese that is dairy-free, oil-free and extremely delicious, to take care of all of your cheese cravings
First, blend all "Basics" ingredients in a high-speed blender until completely smooth. Use powder from the probiotic capsule only, and discard the outer encasing.
Next, place resulting mixture in a cheese-cloth, nut milk bag, or stockings.
Now, place the cheese-cloth inside a strainer, and place the strainer on a bowl, with enough room for liquid to come out of the cheese without touching the strainer and absorbing back.
Then, place a 1.5 liter mason jar filled with water, or any other heavy object, on top of the cheese-cloth, and lean it against the wall so it doesn't fall over.
Lastly, leave for 8-10 hours, for the liquid to drain out outside of the fridge, in a cool, dry place.
First, remove the cheese mixture from the cheese-cloth, and place in a bowl.
Next, mix with all "Mix-in" ingredients. Add olives if you desire.
And lastly, allow the cheese to ferment for another 8-10 hours so that it forms a hard rind. Leave it outside of the fridge during this time.
Instead of leaving the cheese out in a bowl, place the mixture on a dehydrator sheet in the shape of your choice (resembling cheese), and allow to dehydrate for 8-10 hours at 115F, or until it hardens.
