Simple Vegan Cheese Recipes

These vegan cheese recipes are as simple as it gets and really tasty too. I use the parmesan and easy cheese sauce all the time, and I was so excited when I first realised how easy it is to make a grate-able /meltable firm cheese 😀 There are more complex and more true to real cheese firm cheese recipes out there, and I can do a video on my fav in the future but they are do have more steps so I didn’t want to go into that in this video. I hope these are useful XX

I get my nutritional yeast from, but here in New Zealand you can get in from commonsense organics, some Binn Inn stores and wholesale retailers

Sasa B. says:

I have a question! The potatoes are raw? Or you cook them? I’m sorry I didn’t understand this part

Agatha jay says:

What does this even taste like?

Purely Amy says:

How long do most of these cheese recipes last in a fridge? Can you freeze them? I only have cheese once a month or less so buying Vegan cheese makes more sense but I’d much rather make my own! ♡

75% people liked this for that girl…
and 25% liked it for the recipe…

Random myths says:

I really need to get a good blender so I can make a whole bunch of vegan recipes. I really want to save up for a Vitamix. All my life the blenders in my house would break after 5 or so use/(they would start leaking from the bottom of the container)

kittylovespenguin says:

I’m lactose intolerant and I miss eating cheese. This I think solves everything

Sebastian Sancho says:

Our ancestors didn’t pass hundreds of years hunting for start eating thinks that don’t come from animals eat normal cheese or other things and stop thinking that because you don’t eat nothing that comes from animals you will be a better person or saving more animals so start eating thinks that come from animals.

Scarlet Peoni says:

What can be used instead of yeast? if a person is on a yeast free diet for example, is the yeast in there just to give it flavour? what else tastes cheesy if so?

Hal Shwimer says:

Ela makes it so simple to follow….now I have no excuse to keep buying processed vegan cheese, until I make some.

Inn Daydem says:

why do most vegans use coconut or olive oil and rarely use vegetable oil? personnaly i think by using vegetable oil we will avoid extra flavors.

Rupasree Bagchi says:

I can never be a vegan, its so expensive here and there is nothing special for vegans here

Cleo Brindisi says:

what is the difference between nutritional yeast and regular yeast?

Ana Banana says:

I am not vegan but i love the third recipe because I always wanted to find a healthy dip in low calories 😀

Meyrem Pp says:
