Lessarella Cheez
  • 2 cups water
  • 3 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ cup nutritional yeast
  • ⅓ cup quick oats
  • ¼ cup arrowroot or cornstarch*
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • ¼ cup tahini (if you don't have tahini, you can use sesame seeds - tahini is sesame seed paste)
  • 1½ teaspoon salt
  • Optional: You can also add ½ chopped red bell pepper if you want to make the cheese more orange coloured. I like to do this.
  1. Blend all ingredients on high for one minute. Pour into saucepan and cook on medium, stirring constantly until thickened. Put into loaf pan or other mold. Chill overnight. Remove from mold and slice. Delicious on crackers, pizza or in sandwiches. For pizza or fondue, use half the amount of arrowroot.
*If you are not going to set the cheese, you can leave out the cornstarch. The oats are enough to thicken the cheese for pizzas and other savoury cheese dishes.
