Make your own Smokehouse meltable vegan cheese with this DIY kit. The kit renders 1 pound or more and can take as few as 5 minutes. It requires only 2 ingredients (dairy-free milk & oil). You can fully customize your cheese by adding tomatoes & basil, sautéed mushrooms, fresh peppers, liquid smoke and more for your own signature cheese.
Use a dairy-free milk to craft a super gooey, meltable cheese. Or use a thicker vegan cream or yogurt to produce a fabulous snacking cheese perfect for crackers and charcuterie.
What you will need in addition to this kit:
1.5 cup of your fluid of choice- Preferably homemade almond or cashew milk (thus no funky ingredients) or Trader Joe’s brand of milk found in the cold case. Consider getting creative and make a milk from white beans and water, reduce some veggie broth or add a splash of white wine or beer!
2-4 tablespoons of oil- Refined Coconut Oil is ideal as it has no flavor, is firm at room temperature and can be found at most health food stores. You can use other oils but keep in mind that like in the case of olive oil, the flavor of the end product will be influenced.
1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon or lime juice- This is optional and will add that tang you get with aged cheeses. Add the lemon/lime right before pouring the batter into the container.
