Almond Cream Cheese

This is a delicious plant-based cream cheese substitute that works well with a variety of recipes, including the Vegan Stuff Shells featured on this website.


1/4 C Almonds (blanch if desired)

1 C Water

2 TBS Cornstarch (preferred) or Arrowroot

(A possible alternative is 1 TBS of Tapioca Flour & 1 TBS Potato Starch)

2 TBS Lemon Juice

1 tsp Yeast Flakes

1/2 tsp Salt

1.5 TBS Oil


Blanch almonds (Place almonds in a bowl and pour boiling water over them. Let them sit for a few minutes, then slip off the skins).

Blend all ingredients together until very smooth.

Cook over medium heat until this, clear and no longer frothy.
