Made this last night, the texture was fine but if I\’m completely honest the flavour was pretty unpalatable. Had to add a lot of salt and pepper, and some chipotle, to make it bearable, and even then it was barely touched. My non-vegan friends are now even less convinced by vegan cheese. Sorry to be so negative. Maybe in pasta or quiche it\’s not so bad, but I would definitely not try it with crackers, as suggested
what kind of oats is this recipe calling for – steel cut oats?
