For this simple recipe you will need a medium saucepan or pot, a stirring spoon, whisk and a glass or plastic bowl to put in the fridge while the cheese sets.
Add your agar agar to the pan first, followed by the hot water and milk, then bring the mixture to a boil, then simmer for 7 - 10 minutes until the mixture thickens.
Pour the hot mixture into your storage bowl and place in the fridge for approximately 20 minutes until set.
Once the mixture has set, take it out of the fridge and use your whisk to break it up until the texture starts to feel like cream cheese.
Next add the lemon juice, salt and sugar, then mix through thoroughly.
From here you can take this base recipe and you can make it sweet or savoury. E.g. Cinnamon, sugar, maple syrup for a sweet option or go down the savory road with herbs, garlic, chives, pepper etc. The options are up to you.
