10 Homemade Vegan Cheeses to Add in Your Epic Grilled Cheese Sandwich

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :

The idea of “vegan cheese” may seem a bit strange, especially to die-hard dairy cheese lovers, but there are countless ways to mimic cheese in vegan recipes. Going vegan doesn’t mean giving up on the ultra-comfort food classic, the loveable grilled cheese sandwich! Check out these 10 vegan cheeses to add in your epic grilled cheese:

1. Vegan Moxarella

This Vegan Moxarella cheese can brown and stretch, and it stays in a melted form until it is baked. This salty, homemade vegan cheese is great to use on pizzas, since it forms a hardened crust when baked, but try experimenting with it in your grilled cheese.

2. Vegan Cashew Cheese

Cashews are fantastic ingredients for making vegan cheese, and the good fats from these nuts will help absorb fat-soluble vitamins.

7. Pimento Cheese

To add some great textural balance to your grilled cheese, try this pimento cheese spread. Instead of cheddar cheese, the recipe calls for shredded carrots, making this dish a bit lighter then a regular version of this cheese.

8. Gourmet Dairy-Free Cheese

The secret ingredient in this recipe is kombucha tea. The author of this recipe actually snuck this spread onto a platter alongside brie, goat, and blue cheese, and no one knew it was of the plant-based variety!
