Vegan Walnut Cheese I recently concocted an amazing vegan cheese using walnuts and vegetables!

Many people who are trying to move to a fully plant-based diet have trouble with eliminating cheese. Did you know that non-vegan cheese is addicting? It contains casein, a substance that is known to be addicting, which is why people find it difficult to let cheese go. Well, here is a recipe that is delicious, cruelty-free, healthy, and does not contain any casein!

This cheese can be used for a macaroni and cheese meal, or it can be served with crackers or vegetables as a creamy appetizer. I served it over noodles and added some veggies on the side. Below is the recipe that will serve 4 people. You can double it (like I did) or freeze it, so you will have some for another time.

vegan / gluten-free

Equipment: high-speed blender

Ingredients:

2 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed

1 medium onion, peeled and quartered

1 medium carrot, peeled and cut into small pieces

½ cup walnuts

1 tsp. salt

½ tsp. white pepper

1 tsp. garlic powder

1 tsp. onion powder

3 Tbsp. nutritional yeast

1 Tbsp. tamari

Paprika to taste

Process:

  1. Add vegetables to a large pot of boiling water. Cook for about 10-15 minutes until the vegetables are tender.
  2. Remove vegetables from water and set aside. Save 2 cups of the boiled water.
  3. Add vegetables and all other ingredients except the paprika in a blender. Blend until desired consistency, adding the boiled water a bit at a time. Pour into a bowl and stir.
  4. Serve over noodles, vegetables, or with crackers as an appetizer and sprinkle with a dash of paprika.

Enjoy!
