Friends, vegans, lactose-intolerants: lend me your favorite cheese substitutes!
posted by griphus to Food & Drink (27 answers total) 17 users marked this as a favorite
I am really lactose intolerant (or possibly have a dairy allergy; even cheddar gives me Bad Stomach) but holy shit I miss cheese so much. I'm less concerned with the flavor -- although advice on that front is more than welcome -- and more the texture. I miss the meltiness of mozarella, the crumbliness of gorgonzola, the firmness of a good piece of aged cheddar. So, what good replacements are there? I know nothing will be a 1:1 subsitute (and very rarely will it be "better" than the cheese it replaces) but lay it on me, folks.
Two things I know:
Almond cheese works for cheddar.
Nutritional yeast works for parmesan.
