Vegan Mozzarella Cheese
from: Mirian M.Costa - Sao Paulo/SP/Brazil

From friends of a vegetarian list

  • 1 cup water
  • 2 small cloves roasted garlic
  • 2 T fresh lemon juice
  • 1 - 2 T tahini (the larger amount makes it cheesier)
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 3 T quick-cooking rolled oats
  • T arrowroot (or cornstarch)
  • 1/8 t dry mustard
  • 1.5 t onion powder
  • /2 t salt, or salt-free seasoning
Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender, and process until completely smooth.

Pour into a small saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until smooth and thick.

Cook the sauce until you reach the consistency you want - it will thicken right up to a spread if you let it.
If you're going to have it sit while you assemble the pizza, stop cooking when it's a little on the thin side and cover the pot.
It thickens as it cools.
