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.
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!
The cheese is oil-free, gluten-free, and contains heart-healthy fats from the pistachio nuts. Most vegan cheeses are dairy-free but not healthy as they contain hard oils, flavorings, and emulsifiers. This nut cheese recipe is made just from whole food ingredients and it tastes as good as it looks.
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.
