How to Make a Vegan Substitute for Goat Cheese or Chevre

Ingredients:
– Cultured vegan cheese base
– salt
– nutritional yeast or nooch

Additionally, you will need a cheesecloth and a small cake mold that will function as a cheese mold.

Total Time: 6 hours and 5 minutes

Combine the ingredients

Add lots of salt and nutritional yeast to the base. Mix thoroughly with a wooden or plastic spatula.

Load the cake model tray and cover

Pour the cultured cheese mixture into the cake mold that is covered with cheesecloth, so the mixture stays in the cheesecloth. Cover it over the top as well.

Press down and put in fridge for at least 6 hours

Press down on the cheese mixture in the cloth so it becomes firmer. Make sure the cheese is covered well with the cheesecloth and place the cake mold in the fridge for at least six hours, so the flavours connect well.

The vegan goat cheese will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. However, it is so delicious you will surely eat it in 2 days max.
