More fun with homemade vegan cheese: testing Miyoko Schinner’s cream cheese recipe! »
I love being able to make fancy, artisanal vegan cheeses at home! I’ve been meaning to try this cream cheese recipe by Miyoko Schinner for about six months now. I finally did, and honestly, it couldn’t have been easier! I used unsweetened coconut yogurt to ferment it, and I let it sit out for the full 48 hours. That was kind of tough! I thought I was going to be super cool about leaving food out, letting the bacteria do it’s job, but it turns out I am an American through and through!
I made toast with Larrupin mustard, pepper and avocado! Delicious. Has avocado on toast always been a thing, or am I just noticing it now? I like to say the British have beans on toast and American vegans have avocado and toast. It really is a great combination!
I super enjoyed not only making this recipe, but eating it too! I am very into the long fridge life: two weeks! I can’t wait to make frosting or cheesecake with it. It is my dream to try to replicate the blueberry cheesecake from Timeless Coffee in Oakland! It is also crucial I get some more of Sophie’s Kitchen Smoked Lox, ASAP!
What’s hidden inside those gorgeous little wontons? Restaurant-style crab rangoon, SUPRISE! Meagen of Vegan Food Addict is amazing, I want to live in her kitchen. Just under the table, I won’t take up too much space!
I didn’t even know what crab rangoon was until Meagen sent me this photo and now I want to eat so much of it. Good lord. Meagen made hers with vegan crab and Galaxy Nutritional Foods vegan cream cheese. It’s new!
Did you know there’s a new vegan cream cheese? Has anyone tried it? Man I have got to stop posting food porn on an empty stomach, visions of toasted bagels are dancing in my head.
If you have pretty food, share!
When in NYC, get yourself to Absolute Bagels. My friend Leda suggested it and girl knows what she’s talking about. Not only are the actual bagels the biggest pillows of delicious dough you ever ate, they also have aprox 50 types of vegan cream cheese to slather on them. My last visit, I indulged in TWO BAGELS, an everything with veggie cream cheese and a plain with walnut raisin cream cheese and GIRRRRRL, these bagels are NO JOKE. So what if they’re roughly 2 million calories each? They’re amazing and delicious and there is no better vegan cream cheese selection in all of NYC and you can wander up the block to Columbia and see five-year-olds carrying Birkin bags (Are those still in? Sorry, I live in 2000! She was a good year!) and the Ghostbusters building. LIFE IS GOOD.
