It’s National Grilled Cheese Day! Now, we’re not ones to use hyperbole, but grilled cheese sandwiches just happen to be one of mankind’s greatest inventions. Nothing comes close to comfort food perfection quite like stretchy, melty cheese wedged between two buttery, pan-fried slices of bread — except maybe when it’s paired with some tomato soup. If you’re cutting back on dairy, you might think that means a tragic end to the love story between you and grilled cheese. We’re here to tell you that it’s not. Not only is vegan cheese better than ever, you can now find multiple varieties in just about any grocery store. And unlike the vegan cheeses of the past, it actually tastes good. So, get out there and find your perfect vegan cheese. But before you get grilling, we have a suggestion on how to make it: add avocado and dairy-free pesto. Trust us, it tastes more amazing than we ever thought possible.

They call it the Green Goddess Griller. Its creator, food blogger Jennifer Rose Rosano of Neurotic Mommy, described this feast for the eyes as an amalgamation of “nutty pesto, creamy avocado, and melty vegan cheese” that all comes together between two pieces of bread.


Take your taste buds on an ethereal journey that culminates through the physical manifestation of the perfection that is this vegan grilled cheese sandwich.
