    Default Buffalo Mozarella

    This recipe is from Jo Stepaniak's fantastic cookbook, "The Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook." The recipes are simple, require basic ingredients for the most part and taste great.

    Buffalo Mozarella (called Mostarella in the book)

    2 cups water of plain soymilk (I used water)
    1/2 cup nutritional yeast flakes
    1/3 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
    1/4 cup tahini
    1/4 cup cornstarch, kuzu, or arrowroot
    3 to 4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    1 tablespoon onion powder
    1 teaspoon salt

    Lightly oil a 3 cup rectangular mold, loaf pan or other small rectangular or oval container ( I used a round plastic container).

    Combine all ingredients in a blender and process several minutes until completely smooth. Pour into a saucepan and cook and stir over medium heat until very thick and smooth. Pack into the prepared container. Cool uncovered in the fridge. When completely cool, cover and chill overnight. To serve, turn out of the mold and carefully slice with an oiled or water-moistened knife. Will keep for about 5-7 days covered in the fridge.

    I made the Monterey jack cheese, and please note that it makes a lot of cheese and only lasts a week!

    I made grilled cheese out of it and it did melt, I put the oven at 450F. Also melted into tomato sauce when stirred into the pot.

    Hope you like it foxy, you'll have it for days. Let me know how the french onion soup comes out, I love that. Are you making it with the toasted bread + melted cheeze on top?

    It develops the texture of animal secretion mozarella, sorta jiggly but firm.

    I don't recall, I have the cookbook at home so I'll check this weekend and let you know. Not that I won't be home until this weekend, I'm just usually too busy when I get home from work to go on the computer.

    I have just made the Monterey Jack cheese and it's rather yummy. Just trying to decide what I can have for dinner tonight now!

    I made the mozzarella and really didn't like it. I think the Monterey has a much better flavor and texture.

    I agree Artichoke. I tried the mozzarella this weekend and it was just too wet. Maybe I did something wrong but my attempts at the cheddar have been better.

    It solidifies once refrigerated anyway and can be sliced or grated but there are other recipes to make "solid" cheeses.

    Does anyone know if these cheeses can be frozen? I know real cheese can be frozen (like on frozen pizzas), but I don't know about not real cheese.

    Freezing will alter the texture once thawed. Grate or slice while still partially frozen for best results. Also, don't use a food processor above, use a blender.

    I just made the Monterey cheese yesterday and I cannot believe how good it turned out!! And it even MELTS!! I ate more than half of it already. I brought some cheese to work for lunch, and this guy at my table asked what it was and I told him and asked if he wanted to try some. I told him it was Monterey Jack, but it's been so long since I had it that I didn't know if it really tasted like it or not. He said it did. I can't wait to try the other cheese recipes!
