Cashew Mozzarella Cheese (Vegan & GF) | Queso Mozzarella Vegana

Posted by admin on

We recently made a stuffed crust pizza and featured this cheese. We needed some comfort food and I bet you do too! I didn't feature it (yet) but you can actually refrigerate this and it firms up into a soft slice. What? I know. How cool! It is also great for sandwiches, pizza toppings, lasagna, vegan eggs, anywhere you want some vegan cheese. I hope you are all doing okay during your stay at home in this challenging time we're all going through. Let me know if you have any requests for support or recipes you may need. Now, onto that cheeeeeeeese.

  • 1 1/2 Cup Dairy Free Milk of Choice

How to cook Cashew Mozzarella Cheese

Peaceful Preparation
  1. Combine the ingredients in a blender except for the Kappa Carrageenan or Agar Agar.
  2. Blend until completely smooth, scrape down the sides as needed and re-blend.
  3. At this point you can ferment it for 24 hours by setting aside in a warm place with a lid or proceed.
  4. Next pulse in the Kappa Carrageenan until combined.
  5. If using it in a recipe that doesn't require firm cheese use this as is. 
  6. For firm cheese heat the cheese to 170°F, place balls of it in an ice bath for 20 minutes for Mozzarella Balls or place in a mold, refrigerate until it firms up. Slice and use! Enjoy!!! 


For Agar Agar heat the agar agar with 1/2 cup water until it boils and then becomes thick, then proceed to pulse that into the mixture. For nut free: use 1 cup of silken tofu or 1 cup of dairy free yogurt. :) I have heard using a vegan lactic acid creates a nice flavor vs. vinegar. Vinegar can be omitted when fermenting.

Para el agar agar calentar el agar agar con 1/2 taza de agua hasta que se disuelva y es espeso, luego pulse eso en la mezcla. Para uso sin nueces secos 1 taza de yogur sin lácteos o tofu de seda. He oído que el ácido láctico vegano crea un buen sabor. jugo de col de agria se puede omitir al fermentar.
