Cheese was one of the hardest foods for me to give up, and I’ve heard from a lot of people that this is where they give up when trying to go vegan. But it shouldn’t be, because vegan cheeze is freakin’ awesome!
I have a handful of vegan cheeze recipes that I have for different uses, including the mozzarella nacho cheeze. This is by far one of the easiest (not that the others are hard). 3 ingredients, blend and done.
Nutritional yeast is one of my favorite ingredients. It has so many awesome uses. But mostly, it just tastes like cheese! You can find it in health food shops, or on iHerb here.
- Add ingredients to the blender (or nut grinder or food processor), and pulse until walnuts are ground (I use a Vitamix). Be careful not to over blend as it will become wet and sticky. You want it more like a powder.
- Serve with your favorite pasta. Add some sautéed garlic, onion and tomatoes.
- Spiralize 2 zucchini’s and place in a colander. Sprinkle with some salt and let drain for 10 minutes. Rinse and pat dry.

Here’s a fun story for you:
Me: “Hey Ash, there’s two frogs outside the window and they are hugging! Awwwww its so cute!”
Me: “Aw look they love each other!”
Me: “Wait, the top ones moving. Oh. Oh. Ewwwww. Frog sex!”
Well, that was embarrassing. Luckily it was just me and Ash here. But now I have shared it with you. Owning it!
Things have been craaazy busy here lately, with work, Ash’s birthday and moving house. In between it all we’ve been getting close with nature (like watching frogs have sex).
The cows next door escaped from the farm (twice!), so we had cows roaming the back yard. Have you ever seen a baby cow run? It’s pretty adorable.
There was a fox just outside the window one day, a few snakes another day, plus there’s been green frogs running around outside the house (gettin freaky).
Come for the vegan cheeze, stay for the baby cow pictures…
Vegans, did you find giving up cheese hard? Are you still trying to give up cheese?
