Homemade Vegan Mozzarella

have you ever made your own Homemade Vegan Mozzarella? if not, now is the time because i made you the BEST recipe with super easy ingredients and delicious flavors.

store-bought is great and convenient, but sometimes homemade just hits better, right?

besides, you know everything that goes into the recipe and can feel amazing about that.

as long as you have about 10 minutes for prep, then you’re good to go!

after you blend everything in the blender, the mixture cooks on the stovetop for 3-4 minutes. basically, you cook the cheese like you would cook scrambled eggs! then, the mozzarella just has to set in the fridge!

while i do like the taste and texture unbaked, i definitely prefer this mozzarella for topping pizzas and adding to cooked pasta!

personally, i just think the texture is better melted or warmed up because it’s not rubbery, but you can always try for yourself and see!

you could use the Homemade Vegan Mozzarella for caprese or something but just know the texture will be chewy!

the star ingredient is cashews by the way! for this recipe, you will want to use raw ones that have been soaked in hot water for a couple of hours.

to speed up the process, you can boil them for a few minutes!

adding Homemade Vegan Mozzarella to vegan pizza is truly heaven on earth.

the texture could not be better and i am trying to say this with an unbiased opinion, but i think it’s better than store bought.

you’re going to need some key ingredients and i don’t recommend making any subs as the cheese will not turn out right if subs are made.

you’re going to need tapioca flour and corn starch, both of which you can find at many grocery stores.

i have seen tapioca flour at sprouts, Whole Foods and Publix, but check your local stores to see!

here’s everything you need to make Homemade Vegan Mozzarella

raw cashews

tapioca flour

corn starch

lemon juice

garlic powder

onion powder

nutritional yeast

sea salt

Homemade Vegan Mozzarella

Recipe by MaryCourse: Savory, Snacks


Prep time


Cooking time




  • 1 cup raw cashews soaked in hot water for a couple of hours, then rinsed and drained

  • 1 cup water or plain unsweetened almond milk (vegetable stock might work too but i have not tried it)

  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour

  • 1 tbsp corn starch

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder (can add more)

  • 1/2 tsp onion powder (can add more)

  • 1 and 1/2 tbsp nutritional yeast

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt


  • add all ingredients to a blender and blend until a smooth liquid consistency forms.
  • then, add to a pan and turn the heat to medium high.
  • cook the mozzarella with a spatula as you would scrambled eggs for 3-4 minutes. stir often to avoid sticking and burning to the pan. see my picture for reference.
  • add to a pyrex round Tupperware and place in the fridge for 3 hours.
  • the cheese should be set by then, and i highly recommend adding to pizza or pasta. i also recommend eating it right away and we have not stored the cheese as it’s best fresh.

  1. Omg, this is the best cheese ever! I did use my greenpan and it stuck a lot even though I was stirring constantly so any tips on that would be appreciated. Thank you for another amazing recipe!
