Vegan Nut Cheese

The texture of this vegan cheese is similar to a ricotta but just slightly firmer even holding the shape of the container it’s made in. It can also be used as a cheese spread and makes a great hummus. I’ve found this recipe is best made with either walnuts or pine nuts.

The walnut cheese has more of a gritty texture and kind of a beige color but still has a nice flavor where as the pine nut cheese is very smooth and white with a very rich flavor. The walnut cheese stores in the fridge for about 5 to 7 days and the pine nut about 5 days. They can both be frozen and kept for a month or longer.

Walnuts are more widely available as well as affordable plus they add a nice taste even if you don’t like walnuts that much! Pine nuts make an excellent choice too though, and it gives the cheese a nice flavor with a smooth silky consistency. However they are very expensive and have a shorter shelf life. In either case the process to make the cheese is the same.

Steps

1
Done
Overnight

Soak and strain the nuts

Soak the nuts over night, strain and remove any flaky skins for smoother texture.

2
Done

Blend the nuts

Place nuts into a blender starting with a quarter cup of water. Keep a cup of water nearby so you can add more while blending. Pulse the nuts into bits first and then blend them adding water slowly as you need until you get a creamy liquid. It should be the consistency of a Ranch salad dressing or close to it.

3
Done

Add Irish moss gel

Add 3 tablespoons of Irish moss gel and blend until smooth. You should see the texture change a little.

4
Done

Add other ingredients

Add 2 table spoons of sesame paste, 1/2 tablespoon of coconut oil (optional) and a teaspoon of salt. Blend and mix well.

5
Done

Taste and adjust

Taste the mixture and add a little more salt if it’s bland. The sesame paste and the salt give it the cheesy flavor.

6
Done
4-8 hours

Once you’ve reached the desired flavor pour your mixture into a container and cover (optional - mix in some chopped spring onions). Put it in the fridge to set. After several hours or by the next day it should firm up . If you’re gentle enough with it you’ll even be able to slice it.
