Vegan I Gluten-Free
Serves: 1 block of cheese
Time: 20 minutes + 6-8 hours setting time
16 ounces extra firm tofu
1/2 cup coconut yogurt (click here for recipe!)
1/3 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 lemon, juiced
2 tbsp. nutritional yeast
1/2 - 1 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. tapioca flour
1 tsp. agar-agar powder
To prepare the cheese - Add all ingredients (except the tapioca and agar-agar) to a food processor or blender. Mix on medium high speed for 1 - 2 minutes, until smooth and creamy.
Taste and adjust the flavor to your preferences.
Add the tapioca and agar powder and blend until evenly mixed, 15 - 30 seconds.
Transfer the mixture into a sauce pan and heat over medium-high. Use a spatula to continuously stir. Once the mixture is boiling and beginning to thicken, reduce the heat to medium and simmer, stirring, for 3 - 5 minutes.
As the mixture thickens and easily pulls away from the pan it's ready to transfer into the cheese mold. Use a container the shape you'd like your cheese to set into. Place a cheese cloth into your mold and then transfer the mixture into the mold. Cover the top with the cheese cloth. Place in the fridge for 6+ hours to set.
To bake the brie - Preheat the oven to 175C/350F. Prepare a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
Take the cheese from the fridge and remove the cheese cloth. Place on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake the cheese until warm and puffy, 20 - 25 minutes.
To serve - Top your warm brie with jam and serve. Slice and serve your brie with crackers.
To store - Best served fresh after baking. Keep your baked tofu brie 1 day in the fridge or unbaked brie 2 - 3 days in the fridge.
