When I say mozzarella, most think of the rubbery pizza topping. In Italy, fresh mozzarella is king with it’s delicate, silky texture. It can be used as a pizza topping, sandwich ingredient or served on it’s own.
-2 cups water
-1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1/3 cup quick cooking rolled oats
-1/4 cup tahini
-4 Teaspoons arrowroot
-4 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
-1 Teaspoon Salt
-2 dashes Tabasco
-2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
Process all the ingredients in a food processor or blender for several minutes until you obtain a smooth consistency. Pour the concoction into a saucepan over a medium flame and stir consistently until very thick and rich. Pack the mixture into a lightly greased loaf pan or cake pan. Place in the fridge overnight uncovered, and allow a “skin” to appear on the cheese. I think this gives it a better texture, and makes it easier to serve.
Serve on toast, crackers or with tomato slices. It also works wonders in this appitizer:
