Ingredients in Liquid Mozzarella
Potato Flakes are so simple in this recipe, giving the cheese its stretchiness and a lot of volume. Regular potatoes can be used but do tend to taste more strongly of potatoes.
Nutritional Yeast adds a lot of cheesy flavor.
Lactic Acid, Lemon Juice, and Vinegar are where this recipe gets its acid tang. Use what you have. Combining all three ingredients gives a complex flavor, but this recipe is still delicious with just lemon juice.
Miso Paste is a fermented Japanese seasoning made from soybeans, salt, and koji. It has a savory, umami flavor with a slightly salty and tangy taste, adding depth and complexity to dishes.
Salt is essential here … since “real” cheese is pretty salty, this needs at least a dash. But use to taste.
Oil is optional here. This recipe is better and more cheese-like with oil, but it’s undoubtedly also delicious without it.
Onion Powder and Garlic Powder make everything yummier!
Mustard: Just a touch, but it adds some great flavor.
Easy to Make!
This is so easy to make. Simply blend the ingredients until very smooth in a high-powered blender. Then pour into a medium saucepan and gently simmer over medium heat for a few minutes. That’s it.
Use a spoon to dish out this creamy, pourable cheese or, even better, let it cool a bit and pour it into a squirt bottle.. Keep in mind that as the cheese cools, it will set up more and be thicker.
Squirt it all over your favorite pizza. It will brown in the oven, just like “real cheese.”
This vegan liquid mozzarella recipe ensures a stretchy cheese with a desired result that will impress vegans and non-vegans alike. So, get creative and enjoy the delightful flavors of homemade vegan liquid mozzarella cheese.
