Swiss cheese

By Jules Aron

Makes 450g (1lb) block | Prep 20 mins plus chilling | Cook 5 mins | Calories 176 (per 100g)


65g (2¼oz) raw Brazil nuts, soaked for 6 hours, drained and rinsed (see tips below)

115ml (4fl oz) water, filtered

15g (½oz) nutritional yeast

3 tbsp fresh lemon juice

2 tbsp tahini

1 tsp dry mustard

½ tsp sea salt

½ tsp garlic powder

1 tbsp onion powder

¼ tsp ground coriander


230ml (8fl oz) cold water, filtered

1½ tbsp agar powder

1 Place all the cheese ingredients in a blender. Process until completely smooth. Leave the mixture in the blender.

2 To make the agar gel, whisk the cold water and the agar together in a saucepan. Let it soak for 5 minutes, then bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer, whisking often, for 5-8 minutes, to activate the agar.

3 Once the agar mixture is ready, quickly transfer it to the cheese mixture in the blender and process until it is homogeneous. Pour into a container, cover, and let the cheese set in the refrigerator, at least 2-4 hours.

4 Wrap the cheese in waxed paper. Store in a sealed container in the fridge. Keeps, refrigerated, for 1-2 weeks.
