Vegan Feta

Vegan_Feta_01

To be honest, going vegetarian wasn’t really hard for me, but going vegan was a larger struggle. I used to be a huge cheese eater, so giving that up has been ridiculously hard at times. The main type of cheese I miss is, oddly enough, is feta. I think feta just has such a distinct flavor that is unlike any other type of cheese and it works perfectly as a salad or pizza topping. Not having it in my life was a struggle until I discovered that you can make your own vegan cheeses at home! I wanted to start with vegan feta first, but I am planning to try out pepperjack, goat cheese and even various cheese balls in the future!

Read on below for how to make you own amazing feta cheese!
