Cheese is one of those foods most people miss when committing to a vegan lifestyle. But just because you're vegan doesn't mean you should miss out on Swiss cheese. After all, what are you supposed to use on your sandwiches and pasta? This Vegan Swiss Cheese is delicious; made from coconut milk, nutritional yeast gives it its cheesy flavor, and agar-agar thickens up the cheese and helps it set. You can omit the tapioca starch from this vegan recipe, but use tapioca starch if you want the Vegan Swiss cheese to melt like regular cheese.
- 1 (13.5 ounces) can Full-fat Coconut Milk
- 1/2 cup Water
- 2 tablespoons Nutritional Yeast
- 2 tablespoons White Miso Paste
- 2 tablespoons Agar-Agar
- 2 teaspoons Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1 tablespoon Tahini
- 2 teaspoons Lemon Juice
- 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
- 1/2 teaspoon Onion Powder
- 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
- 2 tablespoons Tapioca Starch
Spray a 4x4-inch deep square pan lightly with olive oil cooking spray. Arrange 4-5 chopsticks or straws in the pan at different angles to create the holes in the cheese.
To a medium saucepan, add coconut milk, water, nutritional yeast, white miso paste, agar-agar, apple cider vinegar, tahini, lemon juice, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and tapioca starch. Whisk to combine.
Place the Swiss cheese mixture over a medium-high flame.
Whisk constantly until the Swiss cheese mixture starts to boil. Decrease the heat to medium-low, and cook it for 6 minutes, stirring constantly.
Pour the Swiss cheese mixture into the mold and let cool uncovered for 15 minutes.
Place the Swiss cheese into the fridge uncovered and sit for 3-6 hours until it is set and slightly dried out.
Remove the chopsticks or straws from the Swiss cheese before slicing with a cheese slicer and serving.

Hello. I don't have agar agar. Could 3T of tapioca starch be used instead? Thank you
