Delicious Vegan Cheese recipes from lilsipper with a big flavor boost from Fire Cider

Fire Cider in the kitchen: Vegan Cheese (no, seriously!)

With an office full of health-conscious vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores, it can be tough to find foods that please us all. Our friend Bethany (@lilsipper) has been on a roll lately and we're loving her latest creations!

I made this 100% NUT FREE & VEGAN cheese and honestly, I just couldn't wait to share it! Chickpea flour does the consistency magic here (VERY different from other flours and cannot be substituted) and Fire Cider gives it all the bangin' flavors!

Chickpea Flour Cheese


1/2 cup chickpea flour (must be flour, do not use chickpeas)

1 1/2 tsp turmeric powder

1/2 Tbsp organic taco seasoning

Red chili flakes to taste

1/4 cup Fire Cider (Honey-Free to keep it vegan!)

3/4 cup water


1. Mix dry ingredients together first in a bowl, then add Fire Cider and water and mix well. (batter will be lumpy).

2. Pour batter into a blender and blend on high a few seconds to get the lumps out.

3. Transfer batter to a small saucepan and heat on low, stirring constantly to prevent clumps.

4. Once sauce thickens to an oatmeal-like consistency, remove from heat and quickly pour it onto a glass dish of choice and place in fridge to set (about 3 hours).

5. Once set, use however you wish! Great as a sauce for chips or macaroni, on cold or hot sandwiches, or just slice and eat as a snack!

Cauliflower Cheese

Say "CAULIFLOWER CHEESE". This dairy free, grain free, soy free, yeast free, and NUT FREE Paleo cheese recipe. It's firm enough to slice, cube, and even grate, yet it melts perfectly for use in macaroni or a grilled cheese sandwich. The possibilities are endless, and it really tastes like cheese!


1 med. head of cauliflower

1 Tbsp coconut oil or ghee

1 Tbsp Fire Cider (it really gives so much flavor!)

2 tsp turmeric powder

2 tsp sea salt

3 scoops Vitalproteins gelatin (green tub)

Optional add-ins, to taste:

Taco seasoning, Onion/garlic powder, Red pepper flakes, Mustard


1. Steam cauliflower until soft.

2. Transfer cauliflower while still hot into your blender. Do not add water.

3. Puree cauliflower until smooth, then add all other ingredients except gelatin and blend again.

4. While blender is on lowest speed, add gelatin, secure lid, then blend on high a few seconds until well mixed.

5. Pour "cheese sauce" into a dish lined with parchment paper for easy removal and refrigerate for about 3 hours until firm.

Cheese-less Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms!

A great way to use the Cauliflower Cheese, it totally melts! Seriously, if you haven't tried this dairy-free, Paleo cheese you are missing out! (confession: I eat blocks of this stuff)


1. Slice cheese (recipe above) into cubes and place each cube in mushroom caps. Roast until cheese softens and mushrooms begin to sweat.

2.  Garnished each mushroom with gorgeous microgreens.
