Okay, so I haven’t had a grilled cheese sandwich in over a year. Even before I became vegan, when I ate lots of cheese, I rarely had something melty enough for a property grilled cheese.
And I thought I’d never have one again, now that I’m eating plant- based.
Then I saw daiya in a grocery store. It’s not exactly a local store, but it’s in a city we visit occasionally anyway.
Yesterday, I bought a package (cheddar flavor), and tonight I made a grilled “cheese” sandwich, using vegan margarine and bread.
I am in love! I can have grilled “cheese” again! One of my ultimate childhood comfort foods!
And I am pretty sure it was the best grilled cheese sandwich I ever had.
Daiya isn’t perfect: I did not like it one bit when I tried to eat it cold, with crackers. But hot and melty? Yes, please!
Now, I surely won’t eat this stuff like I used to eat cheese: the stiff price tag and long drive to find it will prevent that. But I can have it when I really want it, and that makes me smile.
