Who says vegans can’t have cheese balls? Seriously, these are very, very cheese-like. You don’t have to form them into balls, of course, but what a presentation! At a cocktail party or get-together, take your sophistication game up a notch with this dish. Besides crackers, this also tastes amazing crumbled over a green salad, or as a sandwich spread!
