Turmeric Vegan Cheese Recipe

Turmeric Vegan Cheese Recipe

Some time ago, the lovely Nondu from Vegan Attempts designed a few vegan recipes to go with the Leopard's Leap Natura De-alcoholised Classic White and Red. She even got as far as sharing a recipe for vegan cheese - what a dish! 

Turmeric Vegan Cheese


1 cup of cashew nut butter (you can also use cashew nuts but you would have to first process them)

1 tsp of turmeric (you can add two tea spoons for a richer, yellow colour)

¼ tsp of garlic flakes 

¼ tsp of cayenne pepper

½ tsp of salt

1/3 cup of nutritional yeast

2 cups of unsweetened almond milk

2 spoons of agar agar powder

2 cups of water


1. Add the cashew butter, turmeric, garlic flakes, cayenne pepper and almond milk into the blender and blend until the ingredients are creamy and smooth (the cashew mix).

2. Add two cups of water in a pot along with two spoons of agar agar powder. Stir until the mix is of a thick consistency (the agar mix).

3. Add the cashew mix into the pot of agar mix and stir until the entire cheese thickens.

4. Pour the cheese into a mold of your choice and leave it to cool for about three hour (or overnight) before serving.
