Lasagna Cheese

This recipe works nicely as a vegan cheese in lasagna. It is also an excellent vegan cheese replacer in other recipes, too.

You can make this either with nuts, in which case it is soy-free, or with tofu, in which case it is nut-free.

The finished cheese is salty, creamy, and a bit like ricotta cheese.
