Every so often I get inspired by life, by music and by food! This time it is all three. With the increase in awareness of what we eat and where it comes from Sainsburys supermarket brought out their range of vegan cheeses. Made from coconut and soy, these gorgeous "cheeses" (or, Gary) taste like the real thing. Especially their vegan soft cheese.
After my previous incantation of Frozens- Let it Go with an Oreo Cheesecake twist, I decided to recreate the Disney Theme by taking their other classic- Do you wanna build a Snowman.
Now, I present to you- Do you want a Vegan Cheesecake? The musical instructional video.
The link to the recipe is below- but grab your ingredients first.
700g Oreos* (biscuit only, keep the filling) | 100g Vegan butter | 100g Vegetable shortening
800g Vegan Soft Cheese (Sainsbury's Deliciously Free From is what I used) | 200g Caster Sugar | 4 tbsp Plain Flour | 1 tbsp cider vinegar | 2 tsp vanilla extract | 7g/I sachet- Veggie Jelly Powder/Agar powder
Oreo Filling (left over from making your base) | 30-50g coconut oil | Extra Oreos
METHOD- link below
There is some debate as to whether Oreos have been tainted by the factory- so my advice would be- use a different biscuit. I had a theme going.
See you soon
