How to Make Vegan Shredded Cheese (Nut-free)

Dairy-free-Shredded-Cheese-Recipe

Picture this:

You’re dairy-free. Either because of allergies, or maybe you’re vegan.

You want to make a casserole but the recipe calls for shredded cheese and you don’t have any, don’t like any of the brands, or are allergic to one of more of the ingredients in the store bought dairy-free cheese. You need some good dairy-free recipes. You’re allergic to nuts, so making cheese from cashews or some other type of nut is not an option for you.

You decide that the casserole can’t taste all that bad without the cheese, so you make it, eat it, and are less than impressed about it.

Humpf. What a predicament you’re in.

… until you remember that crazy recipe on Healthful Pursuit where Leanne used shredded potatoes as a cheese topping.

The clouds part, the angels sing, your casseroles are saved from bland, no cheese-ville.

Hallelujah!
