CASHEW CHEESE (raw vegan) using kombucha as a fermentation aid!
Looking for an affordable vegan cheese fermentation aid? Have you tried using kombucha? It’s most probably cheaper than using probiotic powders in Malaysia.
@damian_vegan_chef asked me during the Singapore Vegan Festival whether I have used kombucha to culture my vegan cheeses. He said that it should be really interesting with all those flavours in the booch coming together.
Since @m3rcce gave me some of his kombucha to try, I thought I’d save some and experiment with making cashew cheese. 💚🧀
It worked!! After 24 hours, the cashew mixture fermented really nicely. I added in some @mu.soysauce organic tauchu as well, dehydrated in the @excaliburdehydrator for the rind and then let the cheese age in the fridge for 7 days. 😋
After the aging, the flavours really developed. Mr Jazz Guitarist didn’t like it on day 1, but by day 7, he was really enjoying the cheese!
For those who bought my Fun with Vegan Cheese eBook, you can do the same. Just substitute the water for kombucha instead on page 1 for the Basic Fermented Cashew Cheese. Happy cheesemaking!
