Has anyone ventured into making homemade cheese slices? I looked up many recipes and there are several methods. Wondered if anyone had tried any.
So as for the hard cheese I'm looking for something I can make and slice for the kids and for sandwiches.
There is another YouTubers who makes interesting complicated recipes, I've only watched a couple and he does have some cheese ones.Just ordered some agar agar, tapioca starch and some bulk nooch from amazon. I've got to do some looking for a good store around here that does that stuff in bulk. Whole Foods used to have it now they just sell the smaller plastic jar....and I dont call it Whole Paycheck for nothing ... I've already been through a ton (of the nooch flakes)...love the stuff.
So as for the hard cheese I'm looking for something I can make and slice for the kids and for sandwiches. I've narrowed it down to a couple recipes and they all use the agar agar and the starch....so I think I'm just going to play around from there. I will definitely try looking at the one from Cooking With Plants...The premade stuff tastes pretty good...had the Follow Your Heart smoked Gouda which was real nice but was looking to make something little more economical and with fewer ingredients/processing.
This and then Follow Your Heart are both the best of the prepackaged slices. I have a package of this stuff in my fridge and its really good!
Thanks for the advice. I checked out bulkfoods...great price....will also try the miso spread for sandwiches!Dougrus,
I don't have access to vegan cheese where I live, and have only tried one product one time and didn't care for it. While not a substitute for cheese on pizza and the like, on sandwiches I use shiro miso as a spread. For me, that ticks all the boxes for cheese on a cold sandwich.
One place I've purchased Red Star nooch in quantity was from Bulkfoods.com because I can't get that locally either in anything other than a shaker bottle. A 5lb bag is about $37 last time I got it, and shipping was $5 on orders over $75 and I always would order enough to qualify for that.
Intuitive cooking produces the best results, imo. I wish you all the success.I will definitely check these out! I like complicated lol....but to be fair, Im not really a recipe person overall...I watch a few, take the premise and then experiment, often getting mixed results and then trying to shape it in the direction I am looking for.
I tried a version of this and it was really great! Thanks for the ideaNot cheese, but cooked potatoes with vegan mayo, a bit of lemon juice and lots of nooch, (and chives are really good) is really very cheesey.
I guess like the potato carrot sauces that I hate so much, but without the carrot!
I do like Chao original, but thought the garden herb was horrid- like plastic!
I need to get one. And something for a hard cheese... I have everything else to try a couple batches.I'd like to experiment by making some soft cheese using cashew milk. I even have a cheese mould.
