*Vegan Mozzarella Cheese*
1 cup water 2 small cloves roasted garlic 2 T fresh lemon juice 1 - 2 T tahini (the larger amount makes it cheesier) 1/4 cup nutritional yeast 3 T quick-cooking rolled oats 1 T arrowroot (or cornstarch) 1/8 t dry mustard 1.5 t onion powder 1/2 t salt, or salt-free seasoning
nutritonal yeast a few toasted and pulverized almonds (optional)
Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender, and process until completely smooth. Pour into a small saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until smooth and thick. Pour or spoon over assembled pizza, sprinkle with nutritional yeast (and optional almonds, if desired), and heat in the oven according to your pizza recipe instructions. Cook the sauce until you reach the consistency you want - it will thicken right up to a spread if you let it. If you're going to have it sit while you assemble the pizza, stop cooking when it's a little on the thin side and cover the pot. It thickens as it cools.
Unprocessed Cheeze Sauce
1 med potato, peeled and coarsely chopped 1 med carrot, scraped and coarsley chopped 1 med onion, coarsely chopped 1 c water
1/2 c Mori-Nu lite silked tofu, drained and crumbled 1/2 c nutritional yeast flakes 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice 1 1/4 tsp salt 1 tsp onion granules 1/4 tsp garlic granules
Place the potato, carrot, onion, and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce the heat to medium. Simmer for about 10 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender. Transfer to a blender along with the remaining ingredients. Process until velvety smooth. Serve immediately or return to a saucepan or fondue pot to keep warm.
*Tofu Cream Cheese**Vegan Mozzarella Cheese*
1 cup extra firm (MoriNu 1% fat) silken tofu 1.5 T fresh squeezed lemon juice 1/2 T brown rice syrup, or 1 t pure maple syrup 1.5 t low-sodium tamari 1/4 t ground nutmeg 1/2 t nutritional yeast flakes
Wrap the tofu in a clean kitchen towel and allow to rest for 30 minutes (to draw out extra moisture). Place all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and blend until completely smooth. Refrigerate overnight to allow flavours to blend, and thereafter store in the fridge. Variations:
