Vegan Cheese With Garlic And Herbs

This vegan cheese with garlic and herbs is perfect for slicing and eating on crackers. Dairy free, gluten free and nut free, everyone can enjoy this creamy and delicious cheese.
If you want to use this cheese to make a grilled cheese sandwich or a quesadilla, simply add more tapioca flour (aka tapioca starch) to the cheese mixture before cooking. This will make the cheese softer so it melts and stretches when heated.
