I am making vegan cheese and it calls for a lot of refined coconut oil. I am wondering If I were to substitute out half the refined coconut oil for equal parts of another flavorless vegetable oil would it make a difference in taste or texture once it is melted. The rationale for using coconut oil is so that it is solid at room temperature like regular cheese, but I am only concerned about the final melted product.

    I wouldn't; getting vegan "cheese" to work is an acrobatic act of food chemistry, and swapping out half the oil is liable to result in a greasy mess. – FuzzyChef Sep 5 '19 at 5:18
  • Yes, all vegetable oils have a tiny bit of smell or taste no matter how defined they are. Try comparing any of two by yourself. You'll feel the difference. – Bella Swan Sep 5 '19 at 10:15
