This cheese has a creamy, smooth, buttery texture that melts in your mouth—or on a hot sandwich. Served cold, it pairs beautifully with apples and pears. Because Muenster is a mild cheese, the base for this vegan version isn’t cultured, making for a meltable cheese that’s almost instant!


  • 1 cup plain, unsweetened nondairy yogurt (preferably homemade)
  • ½ cup water


  1. Process the ingredients.

    Put all the ingredients in a blender. Process until smooth and creamy, occasionally stopping to scrape down the blender jar and move the mixture toward the blades.

  2. Cook the mixture.

    Pour the mixture into a heavy medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring almost constantly with a wire whisk,
