Tantalizing Vegan Swiss Cheese

I don’t know if you miss cheese or not, but for a long time I lived with the illusion that I didn’t. Until I came across this new health food store nearby, which had stocked up on variously flavored vegan herb cheeses. They were quite pricey, of course, but looked mouthwateringly delicious! I picked one, opened it as I was walking and literally ate it in one bite!

I can’t stop thinking of vegan cheese since then, and considering I have enough agar agar to make a ton of vegan cheese at home, I decided I need to get back to experimenting with vegan cheeses. So, here is this tantalizing vegan cheese recipe!
