One of the things I miss most about my former food life (besides tomatoes), is cheese. My favorites were parmesan, pecorino romano, provolone, mozzarella, brie, and don’t even get me started on goat cheese…oh dear.

I used to balk at friends who encouraged me to try zucchini “cheese” and other cheese alternatives. Ok, “balk” is an understatement. I would protest and say things like “what’s the point?” “I’d rather do without than eat some sad alternative made of zucchini.”

Well, I have officially had to eat my words (not that it’s the first time). Here is a round up of “cheese” recipes. I’m putting my favorite one first. It’s from The Spunky Coconut and is a staple in my home. I do make a few alterations by substituting the cauliflower with zucchini and stirring in finely chopped basil at the end. I like to dip slices of it in olive oil sprinkled with a little smoked salt.

This post will include recipes for sliceable “cheese”, soft cheese, and cheese sauces, some are AIP and some contain nuts. I’ll identify the recipe as “nut free” when applicable.
