Newbie – VEGAN Grilled Cheese! (daiya)

I was poking around (actually pinning around) on Pinterest today and saw some yummy recipes that made my mouth water! I was always a cheese lover and when I see gooey melted cheese I still salivate.  Sorry, TMI?

Grilled cheese here and there, it seemed to be all over. I have tried making a grilled cheese in the past with rice cheese (NOT RECOMMENDED it still has casein in it, the main thing we are trying to stay away from!) It was not at all satisfying, in fact my kids asked if they HAD to eat it. SAD 🙁 

Today after seeing that blasted grilled cheese pic on Pinterest for the 12th time, I decided I was just going to go for it!  Boy was I glad! Today was my favorite indulgent lunch I have had in a LONG time!

VEGAN Grilled Cheese (Daiya)


2 slices of whole wheat bread

1 TBSP of earth balance butter or any vegan margarine 

Daiya chedder cheese (the only “cheese” known to me that does NOT have casein.)

1 green onion, chopped

1/2 tomato, chopped

(any other veggie you wish to put on your sand)

salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder- to taste

Butter the two outsides on the bread. Place one slice butter side down in a warm frying pan. Then sprinkle cheese, chopped green onion, chopped tomatoes, and I put a little salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder on mine (because I was afraid the flavor of the cheese would be scary… hehe). Top with the other piece of bread butter side up. Flip and cover with a lid for about 2-3 minutes depending on how crispy you like it!  Place that delicious creation on a pretty plate, pull out a chair, sit and ENJOY! I served mine with steamed kale and yams. 

It was nostalgic! A trip back in time, Oh YEAH!

Love you all!
