Easy Vegan Amazing Pistachio Cheese
This is a quick recipe for dairy-free Easy Vegan Amazing Pistachio Cheese and foolproof. It slices, grates, and will go golden brown when grilled. The only difficult part is not eating the pistachio nuts as they are!

It’s better to make this vegan cheese than just eating the pistachio nuts as they are sprouted, meaning the goodness and nutrients are more easily digested by the body.

Easy Vegan Amazing Pistachio Cheese

I love, love this cheese! Seriously – if you do miss cheese as vegan – this is your cure!! It’s amazing. It was impossible for me to stop eating it! I even made my own easy homemade crackers – and oh my goodness it was AMAZING!
I am never buying Vegan cheese again from the shops!

This vegan cheese an absolute delight, without any bad additive’s, oils or anything else that’s nasty and unhealthy.

Also full of B vitamins and you can use a brand of nutritional yeast with B-12 to get that elusive vitamin. Suitable for vegan, dairy-free, plant-based, gluten-free, and general healthy diets.

As I mentioned above, this cheese is perfect on crackers, and some wine, or spread on toast, and grill it. So yum.
