Base ingredient for Dairy Free, Vegan, Paleo cheesemaking - Urban Cheesecraft

Base for Dairy Free, Vegan, Paleo Cheeses

Flexibility is an important feature of our dairy free, Vegan and Paleo recipes, but it should be noted that the ingredients called for in each recipe were chosen because they result in the closest match to the traditional dairy cheese. The final texture, mouth-feel, color and flavor of your creation will changes as the ingredients are altered... but you might like your version even better.  Enjoy experimenting!
