Kittee and I are totally head-over heels in love with our homemade block cheese recipes! They are so easy to make, and you can customize them so many different ways. And talking about customizing them, we’ve been getting some requests about making an oil-free cheese recipe, for those who try to stay away from oil. If you have been waiting for such a recipe, you’re in luck! The cheese still melts beautifully, and the flavor is super delicious. In fact, this is the cheese recipe that I’ve been making lately, and we love it! It’s adapted from our Smoky Cheese recipe, which is adapted from Somer McCowan‘s genius Coconut Gouda Cheese (Part Doux).
The flavor combo of this cheese is adapted from my Great Smoky Mountain Cheese recipe in Vegan Diner. That cheese, although very delicious, was before I knew about the magic of kappa carrageenan and vegan lactic acid powder (thank you Miyoko Schinner and The Gentle Chef for bringing them into our pantries).
You are going to be hooked on how easy it is to make delicious, sliceable, meltable, grate-able cheese at home! This is the cheese equivalent of making vegan sausages at home. It’s nice to know you can always go to the store and buy them, but you can also make it super-easily yourself.
We hope you love this recipe! If you make any of our stuff, please share and tag us so we can see! #julieandkittee.
