Crafting DIY cheese like mozzarella or ricotta is not unheard of, but attempting to make these types dairy-free seems like a challenge from scratch. For this reason, Etsy's UrbanCheesecraft put together a Dairy-Free Mozzarella & Ricotta Kit that makes it easy to make vegan and Paleo-friendly cheese substitutes at home.
When making the non-dairy cheeses, there's quite a bit of flexibility that the kit provides—the cheese can be prepared from a base of nuts, beans or even vegetables in about 20 minutes. What this kit helps to produce are shapely cheese balls that can be sliced, shredded or melted for use in a number of dishes.
In addition to its Dairy-Free Mozzarella & Ricotta Kit, UrbanCheesecraft also sells a number of cheese kits that are made with traditional dairy ingredients.
