Craving grilled cheese

There’s a saying, “Anything you can eat, I can eat vegan.”

I like that expression. It shows that vegan eating doesn’t equal deprivation. It’s also a fun challenge. Case in point: grilled cheese. Cheese is probably the hardest thing to give up–at least it was for me. But you don’t have to give up anything. Well, you might still be addicted to casomorphins, but you won’t be missing comfort foods like grilled cheese sandwiches!

I recently made a deliciously melty grilled cheese using a cheddar-style wedge of Daiya. You can also buy cheddar-style slices if you prefer.


I used a hearty bread by Dave’s Killer Bread, and “buttered” it with Earth Balance vegan margarine. Grill it up like you would with regular grilled cheese. Daiya melts like real cheese and is a delicious gooey treat. It’s gluten-free and soy-free so it’s a great choice for people with common allergies.

Slice and serve with your favorite soup. I made butternut squash but it would be equally delicious with minestrone or tomato. Yum! It’s a great lunch for kids and adults alike.

  1. Dang, now I want one! 🙂 It is definitely waaaay easier to be vegan these days. There’s a vegan version of everything. So same great taste, no animal suffering. It’s definitely a win-win.

  2. Definitely going to make this!! I miss grilled cheese, it was one of my favorite sandwiches growing up and during the years when I didn’t know the cruelty of the dairy industry.

    Love that Dave’s Killer Bread that I enjoyed while in Seattle!! 🙂

    I got to eat mac and vegan cheese today at Candle Cafe NYC mmmmmm mac and cheese … way better than Kraft dinner!!!

    • Yes, please make it and let me know how it turns out. mac n cheese, like grilled cheese, is one of those comfort foods so many people enjoy. Now you can enjoy it without contributing to animal suffering!
