Vegan Cottage Cheese recipe!



Before I went vegan, I used to enjoy cottage cheese regularly, recently I've been trying to up my intake of probiotics, due to suffering with lots of digestive problems.

I love coconut yogurt, and whilst grocery shopping online, cottage cheese came to mind.
I searched allover the internet trying to find a pre-made vegan cottage cheese, however they don't currently stock one.



So i found the next best thing an easy and fairly cheap recipe, so I thought I would share.



Ingredients

Silken tofu a whole block 
I think this would work better, however i couldn't find silken at my local store, so just used the regular firm kind, which still worked out pretty well.

Unsweetened almond milk 3-5 tbsp 
(Or any unsweetened plant milk of your choice)

Apple cider vinegar 1-2 teaspoons (for the probiotic benefits)

Juice of a whole lemon

sea salt, chives, parsley, dill, black pepper, or any herbs and spices of your choice!



Recipe

Very simple you just wiz up all the ingredients in a blender or food processor, until it forms a cottage cheese like texture, you can make it as smooth or lumpy as you would like.

Its perfect with crackers or on a salad I also enjoyed mine with pineapple.
It makes a few servings and you can keep it in the fridge for 2-3 days.



You can probably tell from the picture it looks exactly like cottage cheese, but does it taste like cottage cheese?

Its been a long time since I've eaten dairy cottage cheese so I can't say for sure, but I think it tastes pretty similar and better!
I think adding chives definitely helped give it that cottage cheese like flavour as it tastes just like the cottage cheese & chive versions you pick up at the supermarket.





Hope you like this recipe, let me know if you try it out for yourself!


Hope your having a great weekend!
