ANOTHER Melty Cheez Recipe (Vegan, Egg-free, Dairy-free, Gluten-Free)

There are already several recipes for Vegan Cheez recipes on this site, each a little different from the other, so why another one?  Well, I was thinking about my fave store-bought vegan cheese (Daiya brand) and recall that its main ingredient is tapioca starch.  I thought I could make a pretty nice melty cheese with that in mind, and I did!  Here is a picture of the ingredients:

1. In a pot on medium heat, measure in the following and whisk together for about 30 seconds or so:

  • 4 T. Coconut Oil
  • 5 T. Tapioca Flour/Starch

2. Slowly add in:

  • 2 1/2 C. non-dairy Mylk (I used the Coconut-Almond Milk Combo)

3. When the mix is blended and bubbly, turn the heat down to low and whisk in the following:

  • 2 T. , rounded, Nutritional Yeast
  • 1 T. Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Celtic Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Dijon Mustard
  • 1 T. fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 tsp. Turmeric
  • 1 T. Almond Butter
Blend until smooth -- it will thicken even more as it cools.

You could well add chopped chillies to this recipe to make a great nacho sauce.

I also added more Celtic Sea Salt and a turn of black pepper to amp up the flavour a little at the end.
