Transitioning to a vegan diet and struggling to replace cheese? Or maybe you’re a vegan pro interested in exploring the vegan cheese universe. Either way, we’ve got your vegan cheese cravings covered! Sure, there are several DIY cheese recipes derived from nuts or veggies, but sometimes it’s nice to have a bag of shreds or a block of slices on hand ready to level up your yummy vegan fare. Here are some of our favorite vegan cheese varieties and a few tips on how to enjoy them.
In addition to sausages and frozen macaroni ‘n’ cheese, the Field Roast and Chao Creamery brands also offer cravable and meltable cheese slices. Slice flavors include Creamery Original, Tomato Cayenne, and Garden Herb to meet all of your sliced cheese needs. We love ours in fancy grilled cheese sandwiches.
