No Oil Vegan American Cheese, Sliceable
1 ¼ cups water (to dissolve the agar powder)
4 teaspoons agar powder
½ cup water
1 cup cashews, soaked
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ cup nutritional yeast flakes
3 tablespoons tahini or sesame seeds
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Soak the cashews for 2 hours or overnight.
Bring the water to a boil and add the agar powder. Simmer for no longer than 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly. Do not overheat.
Blend the remaining ingredients in a blender until you get a creamy consistency, and then add the agar mixture. Blend a few seconds to mix.
Spray a pan with some oil before pouring the mix in it.
Place the pan in the fridge for at least 4 hours before serving. Remove and cut in squares to use on top of crackers or bread. Use on top of your favorite veggie burger.
