  • Place 1 1/4 cups water in a saucepan over high heat; bring to a boil. Add agar-agar powder and mix well until fully dissolved. Let it sit for 10 minutes.

  • Combine agar mixture, soy milk, almond flour, vegetable oil, miso, lemon juice, vinegar, salt, and pepper in a blender; blend until smooth and creamy, about 3 minutes.

  • Place mixture in a saucepan over medium heat; cook, stirring constantly, until it thickens, 7 to 10 minutes. Place in small ramekins, cover with plastic wrap, and chill in the refrigerator until set, about 2 hours. Grate before using.

Cook's Note:

This cheese works best if grated, not sliced, and keeps melting after baking, so make sure to let it rest for 5 minutes before serving.
