Vegan cheese spread

A cheese to spread on bread or use as a dip. This recipe is very simple to prepare and does not require many ingredients.

The vegan cheese is made with a plant-based yoghurt and is a very good alternative to the traditional fresh cheese. The second key ingredient of this recipe is the nutritional yeast, which brings the taste of the cheese. In addition to its delicious flavor, this gluten-free yeast has many health benefits.
