This firm, mild cheese with the classic, distinctive Swiss cheese taste is ideal for slicing, shredding, and melting on your favorite sandwiches.

Swiss Cheese [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

Serves

1 1-pound block

Ingredients

For the Cheese:

  • 1/2 cup raw Brazil nuts, soaked, drained, and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup water, filtered
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander

For the Agar Gel:

  • 1 cup cold water, filtered
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons agar powder

Preparation

  1. Place all the cheese ingredients in a blender. Process until completely smooth. Leave the cheese mixture in the blender.
  2. To make the agar gel, whisk the cold water and the agar together in a saucepan. Let it soak for 5 minutes then bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer, whisking often, for 5 to 8 minutes, to activate the agar.
  3. Once the agar mixture is ready, quickly transfer it to the cheese mixture in the blender and process until it is homogenous. Pour into a container, cover, and let the cheese set in the refrigerator, at least 2 to 4 hours.
  4. Wrap the cheese in waxed paper. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Will keep, refrigerated, for 1 to 2 weeks.

Notes

To make the “Swiss” holes, use a drinking straw or apple corer.
