Cheese Substitute Made with Sakekasu

Cheese Substitute Made with Sakekasu

Here's a vegan-friendly cheese.
It tastes like it would be a great appetizer to serve with drinks.
I recommend this to anyone who's allergic to dairy products.


●Powdered kanten
2 g (1/4 tablespoon)
●Sakekasu (sake lees)
50 g (around 2 tablespoons)
200 ml
★Olive oil
1/2 tablespoons
★Lemon juice
1 tablespoon
★White miso
1 tablespoon
about 1/2 teaspoon
Honey (optional)
1 tablespoon


1. Put the mixture A into a pot and cook on high heat to let the alcohol evaporate. (I cook it for about 10 minutes because I want most of the alcohol to evaporate)
2. When finished heating the mixture, combine in mixture B. (If you use a whisk to mix, you end up with a smooth surface)
3. Pour the mixture into a tray or vat. Leave it to harden. When hardened, slice it with a knife.
4. (Recipe ID: 1261005) Crunchy and chewy. Here's a recipe for rice flour pizza for vegetarians. This pizza is healthy and light on your stomach.
5. It's delicious with toast.
6. Brown rice and Amazake sandwich bread using Home Bakery machine (Recipe ID: 1262702). Amazing collaboration between Sake Lees and Amazake.

Story Behind this Recipe

I altered an already existing sakekasu cheese recipe to make the steps easier and suit my taste.
Adding white miso will make it taste more like cheese.
