Who is ready for St Paddy’s day! I am not. 🙂 I don’t think I have any proper Irish recipes on the blog. So I am just bringing some of the elements to celebrate!
There is also Holi – the festival of colors on March 17. Samosas and other goodies coming up for that later this week. I am running late for all holidays this year.
This cheese is a green goddess dressing made into cheese with some of elements of the gouda. Add more agar for a more set cheese that you can grate it. It makes an amazing grilled cheese! Omit the agar and use it to top a salad.
I wonder what to write up on the posts. How do you have stories to tell in each post :). My stories from school and college days are from a different lifetime, from a different country. The movies that I watch are mostly in Hindi. Why? Because all the latest technology makes the action/suspense/sci-fi stuff unwatchable for me, too much camera movement, the serious stuff is too serious, romantic is much better done in bollywood.
Listening to these songs while working in the kitchen. Wondering when This movie will be available on dvd. Starting to lose interest in Revenge as it keeps getting convoluted. Never caught on the Breaking bad, Game of thrones.. too much gore. House of cards, too much suspence 🙂
Green Goddess Gouda Vegan Cheese
- 3/4 cup (169.5 ml) coconut milk or almond milk
- 1/2 cup (88.5 g) great northern beans canned or cooked, drained or other white beans
- 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1/4 cup (15 g) lightly packed parsley
- 1/4 cup (6 g) lightly packed basil
- a sprig of tarragon
- 1/4 cup (25 g) lightly packed green onion or 1-2 tsp onion flakes
- 1 Tablespoon nutritional yeast
- 3/4 tsp (0.75 tsp) salt
- 1/4 tsp (0.25 tsp) cayenne pepper
- 1/2 tsp (0.5 tsp) chickpea miso
- 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tsp liquid smoke for a smokier taste. personally I prefer without as the liquid smoke over shadows the other flavors
- 1 Tablespoon tapioca starch
- 1 Tablespoon cornstarch or potato starch
- 1/2 cup (113 ml) coconut milk or almond milk
- 1 Tablespoon agar powder
- Blend everything (coconut milk through olive oil) into a smooth puree. Taste and adjust tang, salt, spice.
- Add the starches and liquid smoke, if using, and blend.
- In a pan, add 1/2 cup coconut or almond milk. Whisk in the agar powder and bring to a boil. Cook on low-medium heat for 5 minutes.
- Pour the blended mix into the pan. Mix well and continue to cook for 5-6 minutes.
- Transfer the mix to a greased container or mold and let sit for a few hours in the refrigerator. (I used 2 tsp of evoo to grease the container. Also brush some on the top of the block so it doesn't dry out)
- Slice and use. Keep refrigerated for upto 5 days.
If using Agar flakes, use 3 Tbsp flakes. Mix in milk and cook for 15 minutes before adding blended cheese mixture.

Want to make this grilled cheese—looks delish! Did you use the agar for the cheese in the sandwich?

It looks amazing! You mention coconut milk 2 times in the recipe, is that correct?
Vegan Richa Support
yes, the 2nd quantity is in step #3
can I skip the miso? I don’t usually have it.
yes, omit it.
I want to make this cheese tonight, and I’m trying to decide what to do with it! In terms of melting, how does it compare to dairy cheese? It looks incredibly well melted in the grilled cheese, but I know with some of these homemade vegan cheeses they melt well in some uses but not all. I hope this question isn’t too confusing, lol!
It wont melt exactly like dairy cheese. You can serve it with crackers. its not very hard, just slightly set.
What did you mean by, “Blend everything until olive oil into a smooth puree”? I didn’t understand that instruction. (p.s. I’ll rate the recipe after I try it- it certainly looks like a 5, though.) 🙂 peace from a cool Istanbul late Summer evening.
Blend all the ingredients from coconut milk through olive oil. updated.
Please suggest substitute for Great Northern Beans. I am from India.
black eyed peas or other beans that is soft smooth and white from inside. for eg chickpeas(chana) cooks up not as smooth and melt in the mouth as black eyed beans, so any other bean or even white split peas (vatana) cooked well will work
I am unable to get chickpea miso in my country. Would regular miso work??
Yes regular miso should work ok.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, You are the QUEEN of vegan cheeses!
I love Goddess dressing and this looks amazing! Can’t wait to try it. Your photos are beautiful and your recipes look delicious.
Do think Pamona’s Pectin would work in place of the agar?
it should work fine. I have not used pectin, See somer’s gouda post for quantity and method to use. https://vedgedout.com/2012/10/22/smoked-coconut-gouda/

Wow that cheese looks so melty I am with you Richa I sometimes struggle with what to share within a post, I’m like wow am I this boring 🙂 you are so cute, house of cards is too suspenseful 🙂 I absolutely love that show!
Made grilled cheeses today with this and we enjoyed them.
I LOVE green goddess (I could eat tarragon in anything I think) and I never would have thought to make a vegan cheese with it, but it sounds amazing, especially in the grilled cheese. Looks like a great texture, too.

LOVE this, Richa! I remember when I was a little kid, there was no such thing as pre-packaged vegan “cheeses.” We had to make our own. This brings back many fond memories and looks scrumptious. 🙂
What a great list of St. Paddy’s meals, that Green Goddess gouda cheese looks yummy! I would love some grilled green cheeze sandwich right now!

your blog always, but always, makes me hungry:) I suspect we’d all be very interested in tales of your childhood and school days – what was good, what was bad, how do you see it compare to how the kids around you live? Keep up the good work:)
