This Vegan Pepper Jack Cheese is perfect for a party! I LOVE cheese and crackers at a party! So I was not going to let this vegan thing ruin my party! Pepper Jack is a favorite so with a little I experimenting I found this vegan pepper jack cheese which is excellent! It is made with cashews and sliceable so it is perfect on crackers.  

This month I threw a party at the Meatless Monday Supper Club with different kinds of vegan cheese and gave an opportunity for everyone to try them.  I also made a simple sliceable cashew cheese along with my Notso Queso Dip.

For the Sliceable Vegan Cashew Cheese I used this recipe from a beautiful website called Jennifer’s Kitchen, you should really check out her recipes there is a great variety of healthy and yummy foods. She also posts a lot of Gluten Free recipes for those of you who need it.

I slightly modified the Pepper Jack cheese from the Vegan Richa website. It is a little different than many recipes I have tried in the past in that it has a few different starches in it. I think the different starches help it to melt nicely but I think it was a little grainy.

This is my version of the Vegan Richa’s Pepper Jack Cheese next week I will share my Notso Queso Chipotle Cheese Sauce.

  1. Thank you so much for this recipe. Do you have any advice for omitting the 2.5 tbsp of agar agar flakes? I only have agar agar powder in my local store. Any suggestions? Maybe more agar agar powder? Any help would be greatly appreciated! (Also is there a specific plant-based milk you might suggest?) ~ Kind Regards

    1. Hi Luxmi!

      The recipe indicates that you can use agar powder or agar flakes. For the powder it would be teaspoons because it is more concentrated but with flakes Tablespoons. I hope this helps!
