Ingredients

...for the soy cream...

Instructions

  • For the soy cream: add all the ingredients to a deep glass and blend to smooth with a stick blender.
  • In a pan add tapioca, corn flour and soy milk. Mix well until combined.
  • Then add in this order: soy cream (only 30g), garlic, salt and nutritional yeast.
  • Set the pan on a low heat and cook until it thickens (around 3 minutes), stirring constantly. You'll have a very stretchy consistency. You're doing it great, this is exactly what we want to achieve. Now turn off the heat.
  • At this point it's time to combine the yogurt. Do not rush this step: combine it perfectly with a spatula and transfer the cheese in one or more molds, coated with baking paper. This cheese is typically squared, but of course feel free to give it any shape you like.
  • Allow it to cool completely at room temperature, then keep in the refrigerator for up to one week (although it never lasts that long!).
  • Serve with crackers, or melt on pizzas, pasta bakes, sandwiches or anything you like, really!

Notes

Please note the dose of the soy cream is larger than the amount required in the recipe. You can use it to coat pasta or in other vegan cheeses, or even as a mayo. Using a lower amount it won't emulsify ideally.
