Tofu cheese is a popular cheese substitutes for vegans. By using tofu (a type of bean curd) makes it dairy- and lactose-free cheese naturally. It’s very similar in appearance to dairy cheese and can be used in recipes as replacements for ricotta or cream cheese.

In my opinion, nothing is better than sprinkling some vegan cheese on a salad or a main dish.

  1. Thanks for the recipes. The only comment I have is that calling tofu a “cheese substitute” is misleading: If you define cheese as coagulated protein from milk, than tofu IS cheese. It doesn’t matter that the milk source is vegan rather than animal. Cheese should not be defined by whether it melts or not. The reason why tofu doesn’t melt is because it does not contain casein. But, animal origin cheese made from whey (casein removed), like Ricotta, doesn’t melt either. On the other hand, almost all “vegan cheese” recipes, that are just milk thickened with gums, starches, etc, are NOT cheese. In reality, they are PUDDING…but savory instead of sweet…and usually loaded with carbs, unlike real cheese. If someone were to sell dairy “cheese” made that way, they would be guilty of fraud.
