Use as a 1:1 substitute anywhere cream cheese is called for and enjoy!
1. In a small bowl or on a saucer, sprinkle the salt over the minced garlic. Use the back of a spoon or knife to mix them together and make a paste.
2. In a small bowl, mix together the yogurt, garlic paste, onion powder, sugar, coconut creamer (if using) and lemon juice.
3. In a small saucepan, mix together the yogurt mixture with the agar until completely incorporated.
4. Turn the burner to medium and slowly bring to a boil.
5. Reduce to low and allow to simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
6. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
7. Transfer to a plastic container. Cover and refrigerate 2-3 hours, or until firm.
- Different brands of agar powder have different strengths. Adjust to your brand’s strength.
- I don’t have a scale but I think this is equal to approximately 12 ounces of cream cheese.
Serve with brown rice, jasmine rice or any type of noodle: rice noodles, mung bean noodles (which are gluten free), soba noodles, ramen (without the seasoning packet)—I have even used regular pasta in a pinch. Use whatever you have on hand. I made this version completely vegetarian (even vegan) but it would be delicious with grilled shrimp, sliced chicken, or beef.
