To make the Cheese

  1. Rinse the soaked nuts and add them to a food processor.

  2. Add everything else into your food processor and slowly add the water 1 tbsp at a time.

  3. Once it reaches a consistency to your liking, remove, and serve!

  1. Mix salt, maple syrup, and 1 cup warm water until dissolved.

  2. Add yeast and let sit 10 minutes.

  3. Mix flour & charcoal in a separate bowl.

  4. Add butter to your wet ingredients, then 1/2 cup increments of flour. Mix.

  5. Once the dough is formed, knead for 15 minutes, sprinkling flour each time it sticks.

  6. Set oven to lowest temp, grease up a bowl, add dough, cover with a cloth and let rise for 45 mins.

  7. Take out the bread, knead a few times, sprinkle a sheet with flour, and shape dough into a long cigar.

  8. Slash the top with a knife down the middle then bake at 350°F/180°C for 30 minutes.

  9. After 30 minutes, brush some coconut oil on the sides and let cool until ready. Finish off with vegan bacon, mayo, all the veggies you can find and enjoy!
