I made the vegan cheese, but i used regular coconut oil. It was ok, but I don\'t like the taste of nutritional yeast. I am a new vegan, so I guess I\'m getting used to the transition. It was ok, but not a winner for me. Easy to make however. What could i sub for the vegan cheese? sorry to say, I won\'t make it again.
