What is vegan cheese?

Vegan or vegetable cheese is not made from milk but from another vegetable base product. Vegan cheese usually consists of nuts, nutritional yeast, and oil. Cashew nuts are extremely popular among vegan cheeses, because of their soft taste and creamy texture. But almonds are also a popular ingredient to make vegan cheese.

Why yeast for (vegan) cheese?
