Well, we haven't been doing so well with our promise of posting more in 2015 but we're giving it another go! Seeing as I'm basically unemployed at this point, should be relatively easy ;)
Mmmm grilled cheese. Gooey cheese and buttery bread. And such an easy meal time idea!
My grilled cheese didn't end up quite so gooey as I would have liked but hey! it's been quite some time since I've had a grilled cheese. The lack of ooey gooey-ness is not the fault of Go Veggie Dairy-Free cheese slices because I've had grilled cheeses using it since and they have met my ooey gooey expectations. How many times have I said gooey in this post so far?
I really enjoy these Go Veggie Dairy-Free slices. I think they are pretty spot-on in replicating ordinary dairy-full (well not exactly dairy-full but...non-vegan :s) cheese slices.
These slices do have carrageenan in them, much to my dismay I realized this after purchasing them. I wasn't being a saavy shopper...womp womp. So, if you have a problem with that then these slices aren't for you. But if you're not convinced that carrageenan is bad for you then by Jove! you've found yourself a new favourite vegan cheese slice.
Vegan Grilled Cheese (because you need a recipe)
2 slices of whole wheat bread (gluten-free for some)
1 tsp of vegan margarine
1 1/2 to 2 slices of Go Veggie Dairy-Free cheese slices
2 or 3 slices of a beefsteak tomato (or whatever is in season/available), thinly sliced
a little sprinkle (or crack) of black pepper
Take two slice of bread, put enough cheese on to cover the surface of one slice of bread, entirely. Layer on your tomato slice(s), sprinkle some black pepper over the tomato and close up that sandwich. Margarine-ize one side of the sandwich, place that side down on a pan pre-heated over medium heat and then smear some margarine on the opposite side. Wait til golden to flip, about 5-7 mins and then cook til golden on the other side.
Yay!!! Grilled cheese goodness!
