Roasted vegetables ingredients

  • 4 medium whole carrots, tops removed, cut in thirds, and large portions halved
  • 2 medium beets, carefully sliced into 1/4-inch rounds
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil or water
  • 1 healthy pinch of sea salt and black pepper
  • Tahini (optional)
  • Maple syrup (optional)

Cheese ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup raw macadamia nuts or cashews, soaked for 1 hour in hot water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast, plus more to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, plus more to taste
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley or cilantro (optional)

Crudités ingredients

  • 5-7 medium radishes, halved or sliced
  • 1/2 medium cucumber, sliced into thin rounds
  • Sprouted or roasted nuts (optional)
  • Hummus or baba ganoush (optional)
  • Gluten-free crackers


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place carrots and beets on the prepared baking sheet, drizzle with oil (or water), salt, and pepper. Toss the vegetables to coat them with the oil and water, and arrange in a single layer.
  3. Put the carrots and beats into the preheated oven. Bake for 17-22 minutes, or until the vegetables are golden brown and tender. While the vegetables are roasting, make the “cheese.”
  4. In a food processor, combine the macadamia nuts, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, sea salt, and 1/4 cup water. Blend, scraping the sides as needed.
  5. Adjust the “cheese” as needed, adding nutritional yeast, sea salt, lemon juice, and garlic powder as desired.

  7. You can eat the “cheese” now, but the flavor improves with refrigeration. Move the “cheese” to cheesecloth or a thin, clean towel, and put it in a fine mesh strainer set over a mixing bowl. Twist the top of the cheesecloth to form a loose ball of “cheese.” Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes, up to 24-36 hours for a firmer texture.
  8. Once you’ve finished roasting the vegetables, assemble a crudités platter with the “cheese,” vegetables, and hummus or baba ganoush. Optionally, drizzle roasted vegetables with tahini and maple syrup before dipping them into the “cheese.”
  9. This dish is best enjoyed fresh. Store any leftover “cheese” in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.
