I really want a cheese alternative and cannot find one that is vegan! I have found a "soy cheese" one at woolworths but there is dairy protein in it! I was quite annoyed at that.

If any of you could tell me a yummy vegan cheese that you've used, I will be so excited!

Thanks.

It sounds like you need to get aquainted with this stuff.




I wouldn't say that it's yummy enough to eat by the slice or anything, but it's really good at melting for use on pizza's, mash potato, pasta, etc.

It only got released onto the market about six months ago so it's mostly available from online shops, the cheapest one that I know of being crueltyfreeshop. But the dude who makes it, Ali, is currently doing his best to get it into offline vegan specialty stores and health food shops all around the country.

If you're anywhere near Brissie these are the nearest stockists.

Thank you so much for that!!! I do need to find out more about vegan cheeses.

I love cooking and continue putting recipes up on my blog... So I am acquainted with most vegan alternatives and products but cheeses have always freaked me out. I didn't like the idea that I would be eating a replica of an animal product. It churned my stomach a little bit hehe. But, today I bought a couple of vegan cheeses and they were so yummy! I can now add them to pizzas etc.... I feel really excited about it.

I will definitely try the one that you showed me Thanks for the reply!

No worries. Cheezly is also one worth trying, but Notza's slightly better. That other one that Alain mentioned, Daiya, is not available in Aus.

I bought Cheezly today! It was really yummy. The cheddar one.

I also bought Toffuti which I just ate on a salad wrap! So exciting.

Thanks!

I've got exactly the same problem... bought the soy cheese at woolies, but hen I guessed that it is not vegan. Need a cheese alternativ for pizza, where can I find it in Melbourne? Does anybody know?

I saw that only recently! Got really excited because it said soy cheese and then read that it had dairy in it. huh.gif


I've heard that nutritional yeast is good on pizzas and that sort of thing, in place of cheese. I've not tried it yet, but I'm keen to. As soon as someone else tells me if it tastes good :P

I am in Perth and we have recently been able to get Vegusto aromatic and piquant cheese recently from PAWS on Beaufort Street (just up from and opposite Central Tafe and the Museum). It is very reminicent of dairy cheese with complex flavours and can be eaten directly from the block unlike many other vegan cheeses or used for mac and cheese, pizza, toasties etc.

Just bumping this up - any recommendations for vegan cheese that is tasty to eat on it's own?  I am currently based in Canberra, thanks! smiley.gif

I've tried a fair few vegan cheeses (cheezly, sheeze, notzarella, tofutti...even daiya when i was over in the states) and have to say cheezly is my fav by far! Amazing to eat both in sandwiches or melted on pizzas and other baked goodies and so many varieties to choose from. I was very disappointed when (what used to be) my favourite pizza joint in Sydney started using notzarella instead of cheezly on their pizzas no.gif found it lacking in texture and overly creamy/heavy

I'm not sure what it is you came across, you linked the search results....But I don't understand what the bad thing was. Could you link the site you saw it on? Or even just what the site said?
