homemade vegan cheese
Saturday, September 06, 2014
i have been looking for healthy alternatives for snack food for my kids and came across this recipe for a vegan cheese dip
now i can´t say if this is the best vegan cheese as it says in the recipe as to be honest i have never eaten a vegan cheese so i have no comparisment. to be honest i was a bit disappointed as to me it didn´t taste like the cheese i know and love.as most of my spark friends will know cheese,is my downfall,my kryptonite,my trigger whatever you like to call it.i love cheese and had hoped to find a healthier alternative .that doesn´t mean it wasn´t tasty it was just differant than i thought.first if you look at the cheese in the link it was a deep yellow and runny mine looked like this
in the food processor i even doubled the amount of lemon juice and water given in the recipe.in total it made a small jar and the bit in this bowl
even though it wasn´t as thin as the one in the link i kind of liked the texture and consistancy as it was similar to a humus.i find with the amount of seasoning they gave that it was a bit bland for my taste and i knew my kids wouldn´t eat it like that but by adding more garlic and cayanne pepper it was ok.i tried to figure out why mine was so thick compared to theirs when i had doubled the liquid.the only reason i could think of if the nutrition yeast i used as both i and the shop assistant in the reform house weren´t certain if we had the right stuff but reading the nutritiant value on the packet we came to the conclusion it was the same.here is the german equivulant i brought
if any of you know any differant let us know as i like experimenting.guess at some point i am going to have to try a vegan cheese from the shop to see if this recipe is really for the best vegan cheese or not.if it is i am sorry it would never take the place of normal cheese for me but as an occasional alternative will go.well mickey hope this helps love as i know you wanted feedback from this recipe.it tasted nice with tortilla chips and with blanched bobby beans but i didn´t like it much with carrots.weather that is because carrots was in the recipe or not i couldn´t say but don´t forget we all have differant taste so you might like it with carrots.
anyway thanks as usual for reading my blog and a double thanks if you reply.take care and keep smiling
