I made this recipe for the pure intention to put in toasties =)
But it works well as a warm cheesy sauce for a cheese fondue or on pizza (try a cheese filled crust!)! Use organic, fair-trade/local ingredients where possible =)
1 cup of diced peeled potato – Steam until cooked
Then mash it up in a bowl (this equalled about 2/3 of a cup cooked potato for me)
Then mix in the following:
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
½ teaspoon of powered turmeric (this is to make the cheese a nice yellow colour)
In a pot over medium heat mix the following:
1.5 cups of soymilk
¾ cup of savoury yeast flakes
½ teaspoon of salt
Optional 1/2 teaspoon of agar agar powder.
Once the mixture is warm add the potato mixture a little bit at a time mixing until there is no lumps
Let the mixture bubble for a minute or two, stirring often, turn off the heat
Then mix 1 tablespoon of corn flour with 2 teaspoons of soymilk until smooth and stir it into the mixture
Let the Potato Cheese set for a little while, once it is no longer boiling hot but is still warm and runny pour the mixture into a lined baking tray, you can use baking paper, or plastic wrap, cover with paper/wrap and put it in the freezer to set overnight.
In the morning take the top layer of paper/wrap off and slice into the size you want, if you don’t want to use all the Potato Cheese at once just pop it back in the freezer in a airtight container, it should last for at least a month in the freezer with no problems, unless you eat it all by then of course!
To make a Potato Cheese Toastie, lightly brush with your favourite vegetable oil on the part of the bread that will touch the grill, this is so it goes nice and golden brown, it is not necessary so skip this part if you want too.
Next put a slice of Potato Cheese onto the side of the bread that is not oiled sprinkle with fresh herbs, I used parsley and shallots and some chilli, you can add in any other vegetables you want, sliced tomato with basil and chilli would be incredible!!! Toast in a toastie grill until golden brown. Mmmmm Mmmm!
