Second Recipe:

A piece of cake on a plate


1 cup water

2 tablespoons tapioca flour (or cornstarch)

½ teaspoon salt (if using unsalted butter)

2 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes (optional)

1 ½ teaspoons agar powder (or 2 tablespoons agar flakes)

½ teaspoon garlic powder

¼ teaspoon onion powder


Begin by adding the water and salt to a medium saucepan and turn onto high heat.

Bring the mixture to a boil.

While you wait for the water/salt, begin combining the tapioca flour (or cornstarch) with the nutritional yeast flakes (optional), garlic and onion powders, and agar powder in a bowl until well mixed.

When your water boils, go ahead and stir in the dry ingredients. The mixture should thicken up right away so keep stirring it constantly as you add the agar flakes.

When the mixture turns into a solid pudding consistency, turn off the heat and transfer to a bowl so it can cool down for 5 minutes or so before covering with plastic wrap and sticking in the fridge until completely cold.

When your cheese mixture is cold, place it on a cutting board and cut it into cubes using a pizza cutter.
