Vegan Cheese W/ Herbs

Peace Fam!

I hope your year is starting off well. This week I wanted to make some vegan cheese. I wanted to try this at home, because vegan cheese can be so expensive, plus, I do feel it is important to learn to make everything you can to cut down on unwanted chemicals.

Vegan Cheese w/ Herbs

First things first, I found a version of this recipe over at Delightful Adventures, but I added some more herbs to it. The recipe seemed intimidating at first, but I managed to make it to my taste. I would describe this cheese as more of a vegan cheese spread rather than a meltable cheese.

I loved this vegan cheese spread! It really hit the spot with my homemade crackers and veggies. When the weather finally warms up, I will definitely take it out for a picnic, or use it on a sandwich, or even a just a snack with some crackers or chips.
