Hi guys! Ready? Here is the full recipe for the Vegan cheese you just watched on my YouTube channel. I suggest that you make a smaller one (cut recipe in half) if you do not plan to use it right away or if you want to “experiment” and see if you would like the taste. This cheese will keep well in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Let’s start, shall we?


3 medium potatoes

6 tablespoons of cornstarch

4 tablespoons of nutritional yeast

1 tablespoon of garlic powder

½ tablespoon of oregano

¼ tablespoon of black or white pepper

½ tablespoon of turmeric powder

The juice of half lemon

½ tablespoon of salt

4 tablespoons of olive oil

½ cup of water or a little more (the one you boiled the potatoes in)


Peel the potatoes, cut them in cubes and cook them as you would do with mashed potatoes. When they are done, remove the potatoes carefully but keep the water (do not drain). Mash the potatoes a little bit.

In your food processor or powerful blender, add ½ cup of water (the one you boiled the potatoes in). Then add the potatoes and all the rest of ingredients. If you need to use more starch water, feel free to add a little more but be careful. If you put too much water, you will have issues slicing it later. The consistency should be creamy (not too thick). Transfer the mixture to a large pan and stir constantly on medium heat for around 5 to 6 minutes. The mixture will start thicken up so keep stirring.

Turn off the fire and carefully place the mixture into a greased plastic container of your choice. Make sure it is greased otherwise you will have problems removing the cheese when it is done. The mixture will be goey and thickish when it cools down. Place the container with the cheese in the fridge and let it rest for at least 4 hours. Yes, be patient and don’t cheat!

Carefully unmold (it should come out easily).

And there you go…super tasty and easy Vegan cheese.  🙂

  1. When last did you consume real dairy cheese? Does this actually taste like it? I’ve given up meat and dairy only three months now and tried a few cheese recipes. None taste close, I feel some ppl may have forgotten what it tastes like. I will give this a try, if it isn’t as I expect I’ll just do without a cheese flavour in my life.

    1. Hi David, it has been years but I do remember how cheese tastes like because I used to eat it very often. Having said that, since it has been only 3 months for you since you gave up dairy, it will take a while for your body to completely adjust. You will not find any recipes that tastes “just/exactly” like dairy cheese and once you come into terms with that, you will start enjoying the alternatives. 🙂

  2. Today I started my Vegan journey. What is a definite supermarket list for someone now starting? What do you include, exclude etc? Thanks much

    1. Hi VV and congrats on your Vegan journey! I made a post sometime ago about some of the essentials when you just start:
      Hope it helps!
