vegan cheese recipe?

Does anyone have a good vegan cheese recipe for a brick like cheese? Preferably mozzarella or cheddar?

Can you get a copy of The Uncheese Cookbook? Some good ones in there.

Re: vegan cheese recipe?

I did the mosterella recipe from the UnCheese cookbook; I don't have the book, just found the recipe online. I thought it tasted pretty good, but definitely didn't turn out like a block cheese...more like a nacho dipping cheese in a very, very soft block. I was thinking about getting the cookbook, but heard some iffy things. Do you recommend it? Are there really any recipes that are more blockish?

I haven't found any that remotely work for us. not even the purchasable kinds. We've decided it's better to not do than do poorly.

I agree. I have used some vegan rice slices (American cheese flavor) that were pretty good. Well I hated it, but DH and the kids ate it up like crazy.

If you are away from cheese a while, nutritional yeast is great but I don't think it can be turned into block cheese. So yeah, we are in the avoiding it club as well.
