Method

1. Line the base of a 24cm springform tin with baking paper.
2. Crush the vegan shortbread biscuits and salted mini pretzels into fine crumbs in a blender.
3. Melt the plant-based butter and mix with the brown sugar and the biscuit pretzel crumbs. Spread the mixture in the bottom of the springform tin and press down very firmly with a wide, flat-bottomed glass to form a base. Chill for 30 minutes.
4. Place the tofu in a cloth and squeeze out excess liquid to make the cheesecake extra creamy. Using a blender, puree the drained tofu, plant-based cream cheese, plant-based cream, Kikkoman Less Salt Soy Sauce, lime juice, icing sugar and matcha powder until smooth.
5. Dissolve the agar agar in water in a saucepan and allow to swell briefly. Heat the mixture, stirring constantly, until the agar agar dissolves and simmer for another two minutes. Then add to the cream cheese and tofu mixture and blend well.
6. Spread the finished filling evenly over the prepared base. Leave the cheesecake to set in the fridge overnight or for at least four hours.
