This dairy-free homemade cheese recipe comes from Miyoko Schinner, who is also known as the genius behind Miyoko's Creamery and The Homemade Vegan Pantry cookbook.

While the idea of making cheese (dairy-free or not) from scratch may seem daunting, this recipe for Almond Feta proves that it can be incredibly easy. Made with more or less five ingredients, the recipe makes it easy to craft vegan cheese at home. The ingredient is promising for those who value simplicity, but it is worth noting that the non-dairy cheese will not be formed overnight. Once the cultured almond mixture has been formed, it takes about three to four weeks for the flavors of the creamy artisan cheese to develop a real richness.

In addition to dairy alternatives like yogurt, butter and mayonnaise, Miyoko's cookbook also reveals how to make vegan-friendly versions of crackers, pancakes and cookies.
