  • 400ml coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 2 tsp smoky paprika powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • Lime juice of 1 lime
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: 1 tsp miso paste or mustard
  • Optional: 1 tsp liquid smoke or some smoked salt


  1. Mix the Dry Ingredients: In a medium-sized bowl, combine the tapioca flour, turmeric powder, smoky paprika powder, nutritional yeast, salt, and pepper. Mix well to ensure the spices and flour are evenly distributed.
  2. Combine Coconut Milk and Miso Paste: If using miso paste, whisk it into the coconut milk until it's fully dissolved. This will add a deeper umami flavor to your cheese.
  3. Heat the Mixture: Pour the coconut milk (with or without miso paste) into a saucepan. Gradually add the dry ingredient mixture, whisking continuously to avoid any lumps.
  4. Cook Until Thickened: Place the saucepan over medium heat. Cook the mixture, stirring constantly with a whisk or wooden spoon. As it heats, it will start to thicken. Continue to cook for about 5-7 minutes until it reaches a stretchy, gooey consistency that resembles melted cheese.
  5. Adjust Seasonings: Taste your smoky melted vegan cheese and adjust the seasonings if needed. Add more salt, pepper, or smoky paprika to suit your preference.
  6. Serve and Enjoy: Remove the cheese from the heat and let it cool slightly before serving. This cheese is perfect for drizzling over nachos, using as a dip, spreading on sandwiches, or adding to any dish that could use a smoky, cheesy kick.


  • Consistency Adjustments: If your cheese is too thick, you can add a little more coconut milk and stir it in until you reach the desired consistency. If it's too thin, cook it a bit longer or add a touch more tapioca flour dissolved in a small amount of cold water.
  • Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Reheat gently on the stove or in the microwave, adding a splash of water or coconut milk if it becomes too thick.

Enjoy your smoky melted vegan cheese on all your favorite dishes!
