One of the 5 vegan cookbooks I got from Amazon last week was the Uncheese Cookbook. Lots of it looks great but some weird stuff equals cheese taste!!!!
So far I have only made the Gee Wizz american style cheese sauce stuff. It wasn't too bad, although tasted really strange, very overly tahini-ish (I didn't mix in the settled oil, and just scooped out the solid stuff for the recipe, so maybe that made it too strong)... but we made some notes to try it a little different next time. I had some just now, m/waved onto nachos, and it was FAB! Maybe I just had to stop expecting it to taste exactly like cheese and enjoy it as a tasty thing that is loosely cheese like.
I'll tell you what I had hope for - has anyone, pre vegan, been to Big Eds Easy Diner (the two branches I know are Bluewater and the Troccadero) and had the cheesey chips?!!!!!!!!!!!!!! god I loved that so much. I really wanted to recreate it. I'm sure I will find stuff as nice if I keep trying out these Uncheese recipes!
Can you tell me what you have tried and how it turned out, and any tips etc?
