    Great job! Do you outline all of your blog posts? I’ve read a few of them now and they are way higher quality than other blogs I’ve read.

    Hi Danielle. Great recipe. Been using it for 2 months now and love it. Good thinking with the garlic. Knowing when and where to add spices is a good skill many do not have. My 3 year old really loves this too, on her gluten free pasta with spaghetti sauce. Great. I’ve also not refrigerated it yet, and it hasn’t gone bad. I keep it in an airtight glass container. It seems to be doing well. I think it should keep well, I think if I wanted it to keep for longer I could dehydrate it, but I don’t think that’s really necessary. Just copied this to my recipe book with your website next to it. This way its easier for me to get the recipes without needing the internet. Thank you so much for creating this recipe.5 stars

    Do you have a substitute for nutritional yeast? I have problems with it. Anything at all?

    1. Danielle Keith says:

      I haven’t tried it with anything else. There are some other recipes for vegan cheese without it that you can look up! 🙂
