I think I Did It!......Vegan Blue Cheese

As I have mentioned before, the only thing that separated me between being a vegan and a vegetarian was cheese.  Everything else easy to give up.  Being deprived from cheese seemed daunting.  I have tried many different faux cheese products from the grocery store, but always seem to fall a bit short.

I have yet to find a faux blue cheese and really wanted to create it.  As I mentioned a few days ago in my Miso Mushroom Steak recipe, that miso paste would be great to make a "cheese" with.  It has that funky, pungent taste to it.  And who doesn't love those funky, stinky "cheeses"?

Vegan Blue Cheese

 Literally what you see is this picture is what I added to make the "blue cheese".  It's as easy, cheesy as that!
(I had to)

This would also be great to make a blue cheese dressing with and make a wedge salad.  Hmmmm- I'll definitely post that when I get around to it!

1/2 package firm tofu
1/2 juice from lemon
1.5 tbsp white miso (add more if needed)
1/2 tbsp nutritional yeast
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
garlic powder

Drain tofu and press.  To press, cover in paper towels and place a large cook book (or whatever weighs a decent amount) on top.  Let press for roughly 20-30 minutes.  If you are short on time, squeeze tofu with multiple paper towels until dry.  Crumble into pieces, add the rest of ingredients, mix and magic!  Vegan Blue Cheese!!!!!
