You can find Vegan cheese at Sprouts, Trader Joe's, Henry's, Whole Foods and I've seen some at Walmart too.

I will have to look for the Daiya cheese when I shop this coming week. The cashew cheese doesn't taste so much like cheese, it is a soft smooth spread that is great as a substititute for things like mayo or sour cream on potatoes and lots of other things. And as Tammy said, cashews make a great gravy. I like it on roasts and burgers too.

Daiya Cheese is vegan and good. Its melts good too. I like it raw too. You can get it at health food stores in natural/organic section of fridge. That recipes looks great! I will have to try it. I bet its much better than that Daiya. The Daiya works great for a vegan pizza.
Cashew cheese is awesome. You can even make country style gravy with the cashews.

One of the things I miss going vegan was cheese! I found a recipe in an old book I had for making Cashew pimento cheese, and I had some raw cashews and a jar of pimento in in my pantry so I made a batch last week. Oh my gosh, is it good! I use it on my baked potato and on my veggie burgers. It is good warmed up and spooned on your Broccoli, and it makes for a great dip on healthy crackers for guilty pleasure snack. I forgot to add the brewer's yeast and it was still awesome. It may not be cheesel but it is a creamy rich topping that will make your heart sing! Here is the recipe:
1 cup water 1 cup raw cashew pieces 4 oz. jar pimentos with its juice 4 TBS Brewer's yeast (nutritional yeast) 1 tsp. salt 1 tsp. onion powder garlic powder to taste 1/8 cup lemon juice
Soak the cashews for at least a couple hours or overnight, drain. Put all the ingredients in your Vitamix or other blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Yelds about 2 cups. Keeps well in fridge for up to 2 weeks.
You can add smoked paprica, or a drop of liguid smoke if you want a smoky flavor, but I suggest you try it plain the first time you make it, then you can experiment with it.
