This quick and easy vegan mozzarella is ready in just 15 minutes and uses beans instead of cashews, tofu or coconut! Perfectly gooey, stretchy, and cheesy for vegan pizza, grilled cheese, and more!


  • 1 cup (170 g) white beans
  • 1 1/2 cups (360 mL) water
  • 4 tbsp tapioca starch
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp lemon juice or nutritional yeast


  1. Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender. Blend until super creamy and smooth.
  2. Pour the vegan mozzarella into a medium saucepan, and turn the heat to medium heat. Using a silicone spatula, continue to stir the vegan mozzarella until it thickens, about 10 minutes.
  3. Once thickened, remove from heat and use immediately for pizza, lasagna, grilled cheese, or in a vegan Mac n’cheese. You can reheat this mozzarella to use at a later time, storing it in the fridge. However, it is best enjoyed right away.
