Top 3 Ways to Replace Cheese


Melty, svelty, ooey, gooey goodness. Is svelty even a word? Who cares, we’re talking cheese here, words aren’t important.

But for those switching to the vegan, the cheese game is mega critical. The masses will have you believe vegan cheese can’t melt like the regular cheese. To that we say, we didn’t use “melty” by accident.

There’s more than the melt factor though in replacing cheese, here are some go-to’s to add to your fromage arsenal.


1

Nutritional Yeast

Think parmesan here. Sprinkle this gingerly on whatever dish or snack needs a little sprinkle of salty love.

Pasta? Boom, hit it with nutritional yeast.

Popcorn? Bam, the yeast for the win.

Get wild with it and play around with baking it into crackers or bread or stir it up into some coconut cream for a decadent sauce situation.

Vegan Cheese

This is the promised land of melt and honestly, it’s the most obvious way to replace your standard, animal-based queso.

You can find a vegan cheese for literally all purposes and we don’t mean literally in an unliteral way, we mean literally. Cheese for pizza (that melt!), almond cheese that can put the kibosh on your ricotta or other soft cheese and even options for your burgers or to crumble on some greens.

Toasted Almond Meal

Salty and crumbly. No, it’s not the name of our next album. It’s toasted almond meal.

Hit it with a pinch of salt, give it a little roast on low and what you’re left with is what dreams are made of.

Add it to sauces or toss on top of pasta, it’s gold no matter how you use it.
