We all have cheese emergencies. Even those of us on the cruelty-free path. Sometimes you’ve got cravings that only creamy-savory-salty-gooey cheese can quench.
With this list, of vegan options, there’s no need to resort to harming animals. Get ready for a whole lot ‘a cheese.
#1 Queso – Grab some tortilla chips and pile on runny gooey vegan queso.
#2 Channel your inner Costanza and bite into a block of cheese – This has become one of my charming habits 😉
We’re so lucky in 2016 to have Daiya Farmhouse Blocks, which mimics the texture of animal-cheese, and when you’re in the mood for a soft, yet flavor-packed savory cheese, fill your tummy with Miyoko’s.
#3 Beanfields – Remember summers eating Doritos and smooshing them into your sandwich?
Your inner child can relive that experience with Beanfields, which are coated with a powdery layer of tongue teasing vegan cheese.
#4 Earth Balance Cheddar Squares – They blow Cheez-Its and Cheese Nips out of the snack aisle.
Cheddar Squares are loaded with authentic cheese flavor, puffed and crisp. Classic road trip food! I love taking these on my travels.
#5 Frozen Pizza – I can’t tell you how much pure joy I take in telling you that there are an abundance of vegan frozen pizzas with a variety of toppings.
#6 Mac & Cheese – Looking for the vegan version of Easy Mac? Go with Earth Balance. Want something a bit more grown up and home-style? Daiya is for you. Annie’s vegan versions just came out–I can’t wait to try them.
No time to boil noodles? Amy’s has you covered with their frozen vegan Mac & Cheese entrée.
#7 Popcorn – Mmmm…cheesy popcorn.
We vegans get to eat Earth Balance Aged White Cheddar Flavor and Skinny Pop White Cheddar Flavor. Find them here.
#8 Nutritional Yeast – Cover anything and everything with N. Yeast (aka “Nooch”). Popcorn, Pasta, salad, mix with some avo and spread on crackers or a sammie.
Added benefit, Nooch is loaded with protein. 1 1/2 tbsp has 8 grams of protein and only 70 calories.
#9 Grilled or Toasted Cheese/Panini/Cheese Sandwich – Depending on how much time you have and what’s available to you.
All are perfectly delicious vehicles for vegan cheese.
