3 Vegan Cheeses Ya Gotta Try
Say cheese! Now say vegan cheese because it's National Grilled Cheese Day! Don't let that food pyramid fool you -- dairy is unnecessary and gross. As a vegan, I also think it's cruel -- but not trying to push that right now. Even many meat-eaters who are health and fitness focused have ditched dairy. It's made for a baby cows... not big humans. But I get it, you're addicted to cheese - it rules. But fear not - these plant-based alternatives will fill the void that only cheese can fill. 1- Follow Your Heart Vegan Gourmet Cheddar Follow Your Heart is an awesome dairy-free cheese. It doesn't stretch quite as much as traditional cheese, but it melts to creamy deliciousness. 2- Vegan Chao Cheese Slices by Field Roast When in doubt, spice it up. That's my advice for life and cheese. Chao slices have all sorts of spices -muy delicioso. 3- Daiya Medium Cheddar Style Daiya is one of the most allergen-friendly and widely available dairy-free cheese brands on the market, and its latest cheeses are a big step up in both flavor and function. Soy-free, gluten-free, and made without nuts, this vegetable protein- and coconut oil-based vegan cheese is our pick for best-melting "cheese" for use in baked dishes like grilled cheese, macaroni and cheese or cheesy scalloped potatoes.
