If you are going to try Veganuary this year, you might be worried about missing out on cheese. It is one of the most common concerns people have before going vegan…’but, cheese!’ Infinity Foods stocks one of the largest ranges of vegan cheeses there is, so don’t worry, you will find at least a few that you really enjoy. Here is a breakdown of all the cheese you can find at Infinity Foods to help you choose the right one. Violife
Follow Your Heart
The makers of Follow Your Heart are well known for their incredible Vegenaise, a delicious egg-free mayo, but they also make mozzarella and cheddar shreds. These vegan cheeses which come in a bag ready grated, are quite mild in flavour and make great toasted/grilled cheese sandwiches.
Cheezly is a brand made by VBites, a company which also make a wide variety of vegan meat substitutes. They have a range of cheeses to suit different folk for different reasons, like a soya-free block for those who can’t eat soya. Their mozzarella is my personal favourite for making pizza. Cheezly also comes in White cheddar, Blue, Pepperjack, and Edam which all have their own distinct flavours. The Pepperjack is great to use as part of a cheese platter or on a roll with lettuce, tomato and avocado.
The newest member of our vegan cheese range is a grated alternative to dairy cheese recommended for topping pizzas and pasta. Its fine shreds melt really easily and the bonus of having it already grated means it goes a little further than those you have to grate yourself. Although it’s fairly new to Infinity Foods, it has become very popular, very quickly, which is a sign of a really good product.
This log of cheese is made with fermented brown rice which makes it very different from the majority of vegan cheeses that are available. Made in the same fashion as its dairy counterpart, it has an original and smoked variety. They work really nicely with slices of tomato and fresh basil leaves, drizzled with good extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar, a traditional and simple salad that highlights the flavours and textures of all the ingredients.
So as you can see, there is no reason to miss out on cheese during Veganuary! Try as many as you can, find the ones you love and maybe you will want to continue eating them long after January is over.
