So you are ready to be a more conscious consumer and give up eating animal products (yay!), but knocking the cheese seems impossible? Here are some basic tips & tricks.
On salads, on tacos, on sliced tomatoes...avocado sprinkled with salt & pepper will give you the same creamy texture and savoriness you crave with cheese. It also makes for great creamy dressings and dips like this one.
Forget that Daiya stuff. Head to Whole Foods to pick up Miyokos Creamery artisan cheeses like Aged English Sharp Farmhouse, or their award winning vegan mozzarella for pizza night. Also available for online order. Don't forget to check out Kite Hill's delicious chive cream cheese spread as well.
Nutty and savory and known for it's "cheesy" flavor. Also contains every single B vitamin. When sprinkled on top of anything (like popcorn) it adds that "umami flavor". Watch a video on how to use it here
If you are lacking flavor like saltiness or smokiness in your cooking, instead of adding butter or cheese, opt for fresh herbs like basil, rosemary, and sage and spices like garlic salt, onion powder, chili powder, paprika, and fresh ground pepper.
