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)
