I’m always chasing the next best vegan cheese alternative. I can no longer stand any cheezly (or the cheeses they make for tesco) as the whole range just reminds me of the lunches I used to make myself at university- couscous, lemon juice, chickpeas and cubes of cheezly.
When vegusto hit our shelves, I was pretty excited and I love the no muh melty and original flavours.
The other day, I decided to order some vegourmet from Alternative stores as I was buying some shoes anyway! I went for the herbario, a mild cheese alternative with herbs.
It came in a large 400g block and the texture is quite solid- great for grating. I also think it tasted really good straight off the block which is the last thing you can say about Cheezly!
I tried cheese on toast and it was amazing. First with grated vegourmet:
It melted niceley and browned a bit too.
I then tried it sliced on top of olive tapenade which was amazing!
You can see in this one how it has browned a bit and melted/bubbled.
This is my favourite vegan cheese so far!! My omnivorous fiance says it tastes like ‘cheap pizza cheese’ which is better than his reaction to others I’ve had him try!!!
