Smoked Paprika Vegan Cheese Recipe – Soy & Nut Free!!!

Smoked Paprika Vegan Cheese Recipe – Soy & Nut Free!!!

 Clear Time Media is an ADS-FREE platform. NO registration needed

Nut and soy free vegan cheese recipe – amazing! It slices, grates and melts… all without the fat or allergy issues that so many other plant based cheeses seem to have.

This recipe is so easy to make and is great for a cheese platter, on crackers in a toasted sandwich or anywhere where you would normally use sliced or grated cheese 🙂

Best of all it has no nuts or soy, so it is a great option for so many vegans that have food allergies to these commonly used ingredients.

Cholesterol free and no oils added… this is great for anyone wanting to eat a whole food plant based diet or for anyone wanting to have a traditional “treat” food without the guilt!!!

This is so exciting. I can’t wait for you to give this a go and let me know what you think 🙂

Print recipe here:


1 cup water
1 cup oats
1 cup steamed sweet potato
1 chargrilled red bell pepper (marinated in vinegar)
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1 tbs smoked paprika
2 1/2 tsp celtic sea salt
1/2 tsp white pepper
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tbs lemon juice
1 cup water (extra for over top of mixture in blender)
…. you can also add any other spices, herbs etc that you like.
1 1/3 cup water
2 1/2 tbs agar agar powder

* NOTE: The two main things to keep in mind are that you need to use agar powder (if using flakes use 3 times the amount) and make sure you cook it long enough so it activates… also make sure NOT to use a lid when setting the cheese as this creates condensation and can make the cheese wet.

Enjoy xx

    Whats mean 1 cup? Is it 250 ml?

  • My Knees Hurt on July 31, 2019

    I just made this. I added finely chopped habanero pepper to half of the mixture. Cheese blocks are in the freezer right now. I love that this recipe is created with real, whole ingredients. I also oven roasted my peppers and sweet potato. and threw in some fresh roasted garlic and a carrot just for fun. haha. can't wait to taste the final result.

  • Sarah Tomatoe on July 31, 2019

    I just made his but mine didn’t firm up like yours 🧐perhaps I didn’t get all the agar afar out of the pan… hmmm, I’ll give it another go another time, but for now I’ve got a real zesty tasting soft “ cheese spread”

  • Imelda Hatchett-Mitchell on July 31, 2019

    Awesome! Can someone help me with the bell pepper… exactly how to prepare it? Marinade in vinegar, then grill it?

  • Lydia Oboyle on July 31, 2019

    agar agar powder?

  • Tonia Castro on July 31, 2019

    Can I vacuum pack it like actually cheese or do u think it might go flat?

  • Mela Melissimo on July 31, 2019

    I had to subscribe…this looks sooooo good. Have to try for the weekend.

  • Josh Nova on July 31, 2019

    Oats — Who knew! Thanks!!!

  • Mundomagic on July 31, 2019

    Can anyone tell me why my agar agar never ended up like this? I followed the recipe, boiled it for a couple of mins but it never thickened in the pan. I cooked it for 15 mins and still not thick. I poured it in to the cheesy mix anyway but it has only partially set 🙁 I haven’t had any luck with agar agar yet and I cant figure out what it is I’m doing wrong. Maybe I should buy another pack? Also does anyone have any ideas for an alternative to oats? I love the taste of this but not really the oat part. Love this channel by the way its go tot be the easiest no nonsense vegan channel around!

  • Dass e on July 31, 2019

    Is soy and nuts bad for us? Or is it an allergy thing?

  • SammyandSarah on July 31, 2019

    Thank you so much for the great recipe! It was delicious. You can see our video making this recipe here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJvPjzYDpJw&t=25s

  • Andrea Torres on July 31, 2019

    I just made this recipe today but cut the measures on half because i did not wanted too much cheese as i saw it on the video, but my cheese never got Solid 😭 it is my first time using Agar powder and I think I did something wrong. Any advice?
    Ps: i loooove your recipes!! I’ve done a few of them and they’re always delicious and easy:) thank you

  • vballray71 on July 31, 2019

    Agar agar is available at Asian supermarkets..

  • David Lemoyre on July 31, 2019

    Another note about this cheese.. It makes a delicious nacho cheese dip. I cut it into little cubes, mixed it with my favourite salsa and microwaved it for two minutes, stirring half way through and at the end. It blends nicely and it's super thick, gooey and satisfying.

  • Jessica Payne on July 31, 2019

    I attempted to make this using Dr Oetker Vege-Gel instead of Agar Agar – heads up it doesn't work! Was more of a cream cheese consistency, attempting again soon with the Agar 🙂

  • fariba parvaneh on July 31, 2019

    Hi. Is there a possibility to replace sweet potato with carrots or potatoes?
