The BEST Vegan Mozzarella Cheese recipe is chewy, stretchy, and melts just like the real thing. Best of all, it’s completely healthy, plant-based, and so easy to make. Perfect for pizza, grilled cheese, or your favorite pasta bake.




  1. Boil cashews for 5 minutes or soak in hot water for 15-20 minutes.
  2. Place all the ingredients into a high-speed blender and process until completely smooth.
  3. Pour the mixture into a nonstick skillet or small saucepan and stir constantly over medium heat until it starts to thick and looks like melted mozzarella cheese.
  4. Use immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.


If you don’t have cashews blanched almonds are a good sub. You will want to boil or soak them as well.

Place vegan mozzarella in a freezer-safe container and store in the freezer for up to 1 month.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 1 week.

Use ONLY tapioca flour. You WILL NOT get the same stretchy and gooey texture with cornstarch or arrowroot starch.
