So here’s a little something about being vegan that bums me out. Cheese. Now, I can go without it, that doesn’t bother me the least. But when I do decide to go all out and get some vegan pizza or melt some vegan cheese on something, it just isn’t the same. I reminisce about the time where a snack might be cheese and crackers or a side dish of broccoli and cheese. Quickly those thoughts are trumped with realities of tortured animals and diseased dairy products (yuck) and I’m back on track enjoying the pea protein Daiya. Any-who, I solved my dilemma. I made some cheese (vegan, gluten free, and wheat free) and have been using it on everything!! I dipped my pretzels in it, I filled my omelet with it, I topped my tortilla chips with it, and I mixed my quinoa with it. Oh the variety! This cheese is quite versatile.
Found this on my car the other day… what a nice surprise!
Thank you VeganYumYum for the inspiration!!
