So-thick-it-sticks vegan yogurt

Did anybody else notice the millions of gallons of Greek yogurt that companies were trying to cram down consumers’ throats the past several years? Despite Greek yogurt accounting for 54 percent of the yogurt market in the United States—up from being less than 1 percent nine years prior—according to the DairyReporter in May 2017, there still wasn’t a widely available vegan version at grocery stores with a similar tartness and texture to the tortured-cow original. Brands like Silk, which is almond based, and Forager, which calls itself Cashewgurt, aren’t Greek style, but are good, albeit watery and sweetish. For a so-thick-it-sticks ’gurt with some stank on it, try homemade vegan greek yogurt from Catching Seeds ( The recipe blends then simmers 1 cup soaked and drained raw cashews, two cans of coconut milk, 1/4 cup tapioca starch; mixing in three probiotic capsules; and letting it ferment overnight. — Shoka
