    Please recipe without carrageenan

  3. Wow, mozzarella in carrozza was my favorite dish growing up. My Italian mother used to make it for me all the time. So nice to see this vegan version, I am going to make it!

  5. Wow, thank you so much for this wonderful demo! I am 53 years old and for the first time in my life I have become vegan and I love it. I was a meat eater, then a vegetarian, and now vegan for a month! It is people like this young man who inspire and make veganism even more enjoyable! I am making the mozzarella right now! Thank you so much Jay Astafa!

  8. Hi jay I subscribed to your channel but cannot find any of your other cheese recipes for me to make!!! Can you please tell me how I get all of your other vegan cheese recipes so I can make them as well like your mozzarella recipe!!! Ty for your time…

  9. Great, but be prepared to spend $60 bucks for initial purchase of acidophilus powder, kappa carrageenan, and beet lactic acid.

  10. Wouldn't letting the milk set out covered with a cheese cloth be enough bacteria for this recipe? I make cultured vegan yogurt I don't add any bacteria. Bacteria is already available.

  11. Hey Jay, this looks so good can you please post a printable recipe for your Mozzarella cheese ? Thanks so much
