The World's Best Vegan Melted Cheese
Substitute margarine for the oil if desired. Substitute 1 teaspoon onion granules for the fresh onion. Add more water and oil in step 2 if needed.
You can also microwave the mixture in a microwave-safe bowl at 30-second intervals, stirring, until thick and melted, about 3 minutes.
Variations: You can flavor the cheese with a little mustard or vinegar. You can add tomato paste to give it the color of Cheddar. You can also add soy milk if you want the color to be lighter, like mozzarella. You can thicken the mixture, 1 teaspoon at a time, with all-purpose flour, which also adds a little texture.
