Potato Carrot Cheese Slices

4 Aug

We loved the potato carrot cheese, but I wanted a firm product to be able to throw on top of burgers and even to snack on plain. I grew up eating American slices from that company with the blue box, so I have fond memories of unwrapping cheese slices.

These are much more breakable than those rubbery squares and require a gentle hand. I would highly recommend the recipe I created for the cheese, specifically the coconut oil because it will firm upon refrigeration.

I even like this cheese in sandwiches, which is usually not true for vegan cheeses (besides Chao.)

Without further ado…

Ingredients:
• 1 recipe potato carrot cheese
• 1/2 cup water
• 4 tsp agar agar powder

Directions:
1. Prepare your cheese recipe. Dissolve agar agar powder in water in a small sauce pan. Cover and bring to a boil for a few minutes.
2. Line a baking tray with wax or parchment paper (not plastic wrap, agar will not set.)
3. When agar is activated, pour in cheese sauce and stir to combine. Heat briefly in pan and pour onto baking tray.

4. Refrigerate overnight on tray, then cut into squares in the morning with a very sharp knife or scissors, keeping attached to the paper.

5. Store in a sealable container. When ready to use/eat, peel paper off the bottom of the slice. It may crumble a bit, just be as gentle as possible.
