Dairy Free Cheese

This dairy-free cheese is more like a cheese sauce so it is perfect for a cheese fondue.

zucchini or tomato or even on your bread and toasted in the oven.  I simply put it in a container and froze it overnight. It looks just like normal cheese, doesn’t it?

cookingwithyoshiko-dairy-free-frozen-cheese Add it to your zucchini for something different.

Simply cut the zucchini in half and layer the frozen cheese before baking it in the oven. cookingwithyoshiko-dairy-free-cheese-zucchini I add nutritional yeast but if you don’t have it,  it still tastes great. It just has a less ‘cheesy’ texture.

Sticky rice flour, also known as sweet rice flour is the key to creating a thick,  creamy texture.



  • 4 tbsp sticky rice flour
  • 500ml soy milk
  • 2 tsp white miso
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp nutritional yeast
  • 1.5 tsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp oil
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • pepper to taste


  1. Place the flour in a medium size bowl.
  2. Slowly add soy milk and mix well with whisk.  Transfer the mixture into a pot and heat over medium heat.
  3. Add rest of the ingredients and mix well with spatula.
  4. Cook for 5 to 8 mins or until very creamy without powdery texture. 

Memo:  You can freeze it.  When frozen you can slice and use it.  If you prefer to use as a cheese  sauce, add a little bit water and heat in a pot.
