Cheese for Vegans!!!

Posted May 04 2010 10:24pm
No I have not fallen off the Vegan Wagon and gone to the dark side of dairy.

This is a grilled cheese sandwich that I made for dinner with Daiya  cheese.
Daiya is the first vegan cheese that I've ever had that melts like dairy cheese.  I've had it on vegan pizza from Whole Foods, on nachos, and in macaroni in cheese.  The texture and the taste are amazing!

Daiya cheese has 90 calories per 1/4 cup serving, with six grams of fat, 2 grams of it being saturated fat, 1 gram fiber, and 1gram protein, with 15% of the daily requirement for calcium.  Interstingly, it is not soy-based like most other vegan cheeses, but its main ingredients are tapioca or arrowroot flours, canola oil, safflower oill, coconut oil, and pea protein.

I enjoyed my grilled cheese sandwich with a spinach salad topped with Follow Your Heart Chick'n Free Chick'n and ground flax seeds. Yum!
