New! Vegan Cheese

If you are anything like me, you miss the taste of cheese.  Not too many of the soy cheese I have eaten taste like anything I would want to eat again!

Recently, Galaxy Foods sent me a sample of their new ‘made to melt’ cheese shreds.  When I received the package, it was tightly wrapped in a Styrofoam box with ice packs — their cheese needs Vegan Mozzarella Style Shredsbe refrigerated!  There were two varieties in the package:  white-looking Vegan Mozzarella Style Shreds and orange-like Mexican Style Shreds.

Today I decided to try out the Vegan Mozzarella Shred, so I threw together an Italian style dish and topped it with the shreds:

 

Italian Casserole with Vegan Mozzarella Shreds

I took my largest saute pan and added the following items:

1 – 24 oz. jar of vegan pasta sauce
1 cup dried mushrooms, chopped in the food processor
1 – 16 oz. can black olives, chopped in the food processor
About 6 leaves of swiss chard, chopped
Oregano
Garlic powder

Bring the sauce to a boil and simmer for 30 or so minutes.

Cook up some gluten free spaghetti noodles until soft.

Add all the ingredients together and top with Vegan Mozzarella Style Shreds and set under the broiler for a few minutes (watching carefully)

I was amazed to see the ‘cheese’ actually MELT!  And the taste was amazing.  The shreds were a bit more like a mozzarella sauce — they did not have the stringy texture of mozzarella cheese — but they did taste like mozzarella!

I was impressed!!

Later, I am going to make some vegan tacos and try out the Mexican Style Shreds.  If it is as good as the first one, I am going to have one happy tummy!!
