There’s only one thing better than cheese – spicy cheese. This cheese recipe combines a fiery mixture of spices with various peppers and a bit of chickpea flour into a stunningly tasty cheese. Plus, this cheese is lighter (and cheaper) than your usual, nut-based vegan cheeses.

Spicy Jalapeño 'Cheese' [Vegan, Gluten-Free]


  • 1/2 cup chickpea flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 a teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 3 slices of pickled jalapeños
  • 2 cans roasted red peppers
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 tomato
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup water


  1. We put all the ingredients in the glass of the mixer and we mix them very well until obtaining a homogenous mixture.
  2. Pour the mixture into a case and cook over medium heat stirring often. When the mixture thickens well cook another 2-3 minutes.
  3. Pour the mixture into a slightly oiled mold or silicone mold to remove mold more easily then cool 1-2 hours.





Comforting meat-free dinners that are varied, colorful, and delicious. Vegan food has always called my attention because it is varied, colorful, and delicious; there are surprising combinations which create extraordinary and unexpected tastes. However, the most important fact is that no animal has to get hurt in order to eat well. I went vegan in 2011 and it was the best choice I have ever made. First, I did it to save animals, but then later I realized how beneficial it was for both the environment and health. I love trying new recipes and share my vegan creations with everyone, that is why I started my blog Vegspiration, where anyone can find something to get inspired and take the path towards veganism.

Exactly how many canned ounces are these 2 cans of roasted red peppers? They come in many sizes, or many jarred peppers might be the only ones available.
