Hey my friends!
Happy National Grilled Cheese Day! Yes, you read right. Who doesn’t love a great grilled cheese sandwich…well maybe those that don’t eat cheese because they’re vegan or dare I say it…lactose intolerant.
I absolutely love cheese and one reasons I always said I couldn’t commit myself to a vegan lifestyle is because I would miss it too much.
But guess what, you no longer have to miss out on certain meals, such as a grilled cheese sandwich. Just to put it out there…
Of course there will never be a 100% substitute for cheese, but there are products that come real close.
So to celebrate this day, I wanted to create one of my favorite ways to make a grilled cheese sandwich and it’s vegan. Your probably scratching your head and wondering how is this really going to taste. Will it give that same ooey gooey effect? Trust me…
Here’s what you need:
- Vegan cheddar slice (Violife is my absolute favorite vegan slice cheese)
- Plant butter
- Jalepeno slices
- Baby spinach
- 100% whole wheat sliced bread
I don’t need to tell you how to make a grilled cheese sandwich. I will say that I don’t use a ton of butter when making my grilled cheese sandwich. There’s just no need. I lightly butter the outside of the bread with the almond plant-based butter. No need to butter the inside, as we want to keep this somewhat healthy and thus the reason for adding the baby spinach. I like a little kick to my sandwich, so I cut my jalapeños into pieces and spread throughout the sandwich.
One of the reasons I love Violife cheddar cheese is the fact that it melts (and this is not sponsored by the way).
Whether you are vegan or not, I guarantee that you will love this. I’m curious to know if you’re not plant-based and decided to try this. Please let me know what you thought about it.
Until next time, night night 💋
