I would love to welcome you into the world of vegan cheese. Vegan cheese I would say it is a food group in and of itself. It’s not cheese and not a sauce, its composed of different ingredients with different textures, but yet is still manages to taste good, in some cases. I have had my fair of vegan cheese and I still prefer to make my own. Here is one I found This vegan almond cheese ball was quite tasty. I do want to say though, I didn’t have the right processor to make this. I spent quite sometime trying to get the smooth texture, but ended up with a semi-smooth cheese ball. With that said, it still tasted great and thus, I had to share it with you. The website I found this recipe on was Maple Spice. Actually a cute website that has vegan options. Check it out! Enjoy.
