Pour olive oil, water, plant based milk, and salt into a large saucepan. place over high heat.

When the mixture comes to a boil, remove from heat immediately. Stir in tapioca flour and garlic until smooth. Set aside to rest for 10-15 minutes.

Stir the Daiya Cheddar Style Shreds and egg replacer into the tapioca mixture until well combined. The mixture should be chunky like cottage cheese.
