The Best Vegan Artisanal Cheese Brands

Our top fancy plant-based cheeses for vegan charcuterie boards and party snacks.

Vegan artisanal cheeses are our jam. And speaking of jam, charcuterie boards full of fruity jams, plant-based meats, assorted nuts, and dairy-free cheeses are a vibe. Don’t settle for mundane cheese options—we’re getting fancy here. It’s time to level up the appetizer hour with the best vegan artisanal cheese brands around.

Misha’s Kind Foods

Non-Dairy Cheeses

This artisan-crafted cheese was made to be shared with hungry vegan friends. The Los Angeles-based cruelty-free cheese company stocks several flavors of tasty non-dairy cheeses. At the moment we are loving the Lox and French Connection varieties from Misha’s Kind Foods. You’ll wanna snag a tub, or two, ASAP.

Treeline Cheese

Aged Artisanal Plant-Based Cheese Wheels

Available in classic and cracked pepper varieties, these aged artisanal plant-based cheese wheels are made for serious snack sessions. Treeline cheeses are made with cashews, sea salt, and active cultures—we love their tart, cheesy flavor. Bring on the wine and cheese nights and pair these wheels with dried fruit and pretzels.

This Portland-based organic cheese company crafts some of the best artisanal vegan cheeses around!

With a variety of flavors available in firm, semi-soft, and soft varieties, Vtopian is what dreamy cheese plates are made of.

Reine Vegan Cuisine

Gourmet Vegan Cheeses

Reine, it’s French for queen, and this vegan artisanal cheese is fit for one. We’re obsessed with the brand’s Fauxgonzola, Trufflehound, and Smoked Cheddar selections. Get your hands on these gourmet vegan cheeses for your next dinner party, even if it’s a dinner party for one. No judgment at all.

Boursin

Dairy-Free Cheese Spread

Wendy’s Vegan Kitchen

Wendy’s Nutty Cheese

The small-batch, plant-based cheeses from Wendy’s Vegan Kitchen are a must-try. Her inventive creations are made with nuts, soy milk, and a variety of flavorful additions. These nutty selections are rotational, but you’ll find options like Spicy Cheddar and Aged Blue Cheese available online. Three words: add to cart.

SriMu

Vegan Cheese Wheels

SriMu adds finesse to any plant-based charcuterie board with their lavish “NOT Cheese” products. Made with cashews, organic Irish moss, aquafaba powder, and vegan active cultures, the subscription-based cheeses are inspired by brie, smoked gouda, blue, camembert, gorgonzola, and mozzarella varieties. It’s time to snag a few and pass the crackers over here.

@vegcentricdietitian

During her studies to become a registered dietitian, Anja—a longtime vegetarian—transitioned to a vegan diet. Living in Kalamazoo, Michigan at the time (Go Broncos!), she met Maggie and Tammie through VegOut Kalamazoo (one of VegOut’s first focus cities) and began collaborating with the duo. When she’s not writing about new vegan eats, practicing as a pediatric clinical dietitian, and virtually coaching fellow plant-based eaters, you can find her creating veg-centric recipes, trying new cruelty-free products, and spending time with her partner Addison and cat Kovu.

Must-have products: Ezekiel Bread, Racconto Giardiniera, Pacifica Vegan Collagen Complex Serum, Elina Organics Botanical Cleanser

Tofu Tikkā Recipe

Tikkā is a northern Indian dish involving marinated protein or vegetables cooked in a tandoor, or clay oven. My version is made with marinated tofu baked on skewers in a conventional oven to mimic the traditional cooking vessel, which adds a char and smokiness to the dish. Using smoked paprika further pays tribute to the traditional cooking technique. This tikkā is best served hot with cooling mint chutneys and is delicious in lettuce wraps as well. For lettuce wraps, dice the tofu and vegetables into smaller pieces after cooking and fill the lettuce leaves just before serving.
