Vegan Pepper Mozzarella

Vegan Pepper Mozzarella

The dairy-free alternative to conventional Mozzarella.

Actually, we think some vegan meat and dairy substitutes are a bit strange.
When we stroll through our vegan store here and see all these crazy inventions, like vegan prawns or all different types of sausages, we never have the feeling, we need to buy products which look exactly like the ones we want to avoid in our diet.

Nevertheless, we thought this "cheese" looks probably more like mozzarella, so we named it like this.


This mozzarella is so super-easy to make.
The whole process doesn't take longer than 10-15 minutes.

In the evening we like to mix all the ingredients together, let it boil briefly and then put it in the fridge overnight.

After a few hours the mozzarella is ready.
For blending, we used our Personal Blender, one of our best purchases for the kitchen this year.
This is a small mixer, which you can use for different things, like green smoothies, soups or sauces.

It also includes a small grinder to pulverize herbs, cereals or nuts within seconds.
It's so small and handy that we always take it with us on vacation.

The mozzarella gets its consistency by Agar Agar - an ingenious vegetable gelling agent.
You can find it in any health food store.
I really wonder who still uses gelatin from pork rind and animal bones.


Serve it traditionally with tomatoes or simply cut it in slices ​​or spread it on your bread.

And then...... Enjoy!
