The holidays are coming up and if you’re like me, you want easy, healthy, and incredibly delicious recipes to please your guests. This is one of my favorite vegan cheese recipes and I’ve wanted to share it for a long time. Here is a vegan cheese log that is beyond easy to make and ready in less than an hour! It’s so flavorful and super creamy with a touch of herbs. This cheese is very versatile and you can serve it on a cheese platter, add it to a holiday hummus board, or use it in a multitude of dishes.
This has to be one of the easiest vegan gourmet cheese recipes out there. I personally love cultured cheeses and using probiotics to make aged cheese, but sometimes you just don’t have the time for recipes like that. Sometimes you just want cheese right now!
If the thought of waiting a few days for your cheese to age isn’t your thing, you’ll love this recipe. For this vegan cheese log, all you have to do is simply blend all of the ingredients together in a blender until smooth, then transfer it to the oven to cook for 20 minutes. Once it’s finished cooking, cool it slightly, roll it into a log shape, coat it with your favorite fresh herbs, and chill it until you’re ready to serve. It literally doesn’t get easier than this.
I have been making this recipe for years and I love to put it on pasta, salads, sandwiches, and avocado toast. For the holidays and for entertaining, you can make a fancy cheese board and serve it with ingredients like crackers, fresh veggies, bread, olives, dips, grapes, vegan meats, and more. I put it in my tofu scramble recently and was blown away by the flavor!
Use this vegan cheese log recipe anywhere you would normally use a soft cheese or goat cheese.
