Finding a dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan cheese that melted was not an easy feat. But since we love grilled cheese sandwiches, pizza and casseroles over here, I kept hunting until I found one – Daiya.
It was either that or have my husband and one daughter suffer through meltless options while the rest of us enjoyed the deliciousness of melted dairy. While there were definitely times this happened during the testing stage, I’m happy this didn’t have to become the norm, :-).
Daiya makes many cheese options that melt, but I go for the slices and shredded cheese options. I keep these vegan cheddar slices in the fridge for sandwiches, and the vegan shredded mozzarella to sprinkle on casseroles and pizza.
How Does Daiya Vegan Cheese Taste?
Both my daughter and husband love it, so if you’re looking for a good alternative to dairy this is one. I tasted it and yes, it’s good. I’m not giving up my dairy to go completely vegan and gluten-free, but I will eat this, too.
Where to Buy:
In the Charlotte area it’s available at many grocery stores, including The Fresh Market and some Food Lion locations. You can also purchase it at Whole Foods Markets around the country, or on Amazon. If you’re curious about your local grocery stores not listed here, here’s a locator you can use .
Looking on their website, I see they have a cheesecake. I think I’ll have to buy that next time, you know, for testing purposes.
Enjoy your cheesy dishes!
