DIRECTIONS

  • Begin by combining the agar and tap water in a small sauce pan.
  • Heat over a medium flame, stirring often.
  • When the mixture boils, reduce the heat a bit.
  • Allow the agar to boil gently for 5 minutes.
  • Stir often to prevent burning and to make sure that all of the agar dissolves.
  • Meanwhile, measure all of the other ingredients into a blender container.
  • When the agar is finished boiling, carefully pour it into the blender container.
  • Place the lid on the blender and whizz it on high for about a minute.
  • Stop, scrape down the sides, replace the lid and whizz again, for about another minute.
  • The mixture should be very smooth and the same orange color as dairy cheddar.
  • Pour the mixture into a small, lightly oiled loaf pan.
  • The pan I use is about 3 by 7 inches.
  • Place the pan in the refrigerator and allow it to chill until firm.
