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

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

I have lost over 50 pounds and reversed heart issues. A plant based lifestyle has totally changed my life and brought back my health, energy and vitality! The journey all started when I watched the movie Forks Over Knives – to get your own copy of this life changing dvd, visit my affiliate page on Amazon if interested at And I also read The China Study:


  1. Yay! Finally! I was getting so discouraged because I kept seeing all the nut cheeses with cashews 🤢. I’m so glad that there’s a different version I can eat without worrying about allergies. Cheese has been the hardest thing to stop eating. I’m looking forward to making this someday soon!

  2. Literally this is the most delicious from all vegan cheese thay I’ve tried before 😍but i got lost on the measurement so it became more liquid and i then i added half of agar agar powder .for how long could it last??

  3. I can’t wait to try this!! I haven’t worked with agar before, a little nervous…Does anyone know if this recipe works out great if halved or even make 1/3 of? Seems like a lot of cheese for first time try lol 🧀

  4. Hey just wondering if I half this recipe (to fit in my nutribullet) Would it still come together fine?
    Guessing it’s a trial and error thing 🤗😎 If some one has tried this let me know thanks 🤗
