1 cheese round
Stores in fridge for up to 1 week
This makes a sliceable ‘cheese’, worthy of any cheese board. You can even grill it (it will bubble a little but not melt). Makes 1 cheese round.
A ring mould / end of a card tube lined with cling film
100g nooj (cashew works best here)
2 tsp nutritional yeast
1 tsp coconut oil, melted
1 tsp cornflour
1 tsp garlic powder
½ tsp finely grated lemon zest
½ tsp salt
Optional – 1 tsp finely chopped chives
1 tbsp of either poppy seeds, toasted pine nuts or chopped, fresh herbs
Add the nooj to a bowl, melt the coconut oil and combine with a mini whisk.
Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
Line your mould with cling film, tip in your cheese mixture and press down. Cover with cling film and chill for a couple of hours or overnight.
When chilled and firm to touch, remove the cheese and roll in your chosen coatings. Feel free to change it up by choosing your own coatings and additions.
Keep covered in the fridge and your cheese will last a couple of weeks.
Feel free to add a little more nutritional yeast for a more intense, cheesy flavour. It’s a great source of vitamin B12 too.
