Vegan Brie Vegan Brie So Delicious Dairy Free
This is a great spread that satisfies that creamy cheese craving, without the dairy!

  • Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups Original Coconut Milk Beverage by So Delicious Dairy Free
    1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    2 tbsp wheat germ
    3 tbsp agar agar flakes
    1/4 cup nutritional yeast
    1/4 cup lemon juice
    2 tbsp tahini
    1-2 cloves garlic, minced
    1/2 cup raw cashews, chopped
    1/2 cup silken tofu, crumbled
    3 tbsp fresh chives, finely chopped
  • Instructions: Lightly oil two small tart pans or other shallow mold, pie plate, or something of that nature. Dust it with a light sprinkle of wheat germ, ensuring it is as evenly distributed as possible. Set aside.

    Combine So Delicious Dairy Free Coconut Milk and agar agar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, until dissolved, about 5–10 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and let cool.

    In another small bowl, combine nutritional yeast, lemon, tahini, garlic, and salt. Using a fork, whip ingredients together until smooth and free of lumps. Set aside. In a food processor, add cashews and pulse/blend until they are the consistency of a fine meal.

    To your cashews, add tofu, agar agar mixture, and nutritional yeast mixture. Pulse/blend until smooth. Add fresh chopped chives and pulse until just combined. Taste and add salt as needed.

    Transfer "cheese" into prepared containers, pressing mixture down very firmly and into the corners. Let sit about 30 minutes then cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 5–6 hours but overnight is best. Invert each mold onto a large plate or tray.

    Serve with crunchy veggies or your favorite cracker.
