DIY Vegan Cheddar Cheese

What do you do when you have a food craving and don’t have that food item in your house or a crucial ingredient is missing? You do-it-yourself (make-it-yourself in this case)! I wanted to make cheesy Mac, but didn’t have the Daiya cheddar cheese in the fridge nor did I want to drive to the grocery store. Most recipes for homemade vegan cheese require cashews or some other nut. Since nuts are an absolute life threat in my household, I had to find an alternative. So, I just winged it and came up with this very tasty cheddar cheese. I wasn’t particular with the measuring and ended up having a great amount leftover, so I also ate some of this homemade cheese with quinoa tortilla chips afterwards. Delicious!

Ingredients:

  1. Carrots (6 peeled and boiled baby carrots)
  2. Potatoes (2 peeled and boiled)
  3. Nutritional yeast (1 cup)
  4. Salt (1/4 tsp)
  5. Garlic (1 clove or 1 tsp of garlic powder)
  6. Water (1 cup)

I threw all ingredients into my high speed blender and this is the end product.
