Does anyone have and recipes or meal ideas for Follow Your Heart vegan cheddar cheese?<br><br>
When eaten by itself, it is almost as horrific as the "milk, milk" video.<br><br>
How do you use this stuff, and does it go bad quickly after it's been opened?

Yes!!<br><br><br><br>
I put some chunks in a small bowl and cover it, then put it in the microwave for 10 sec, stir, 10 more seconds, stir - until completely melted. Then I use it on top of tortilla chips w/veggie crumbles or just as a dip for the chips. I also put it on top of soy dogs.<br><br><br><br>
For the mozzarella style, I finely shread it, put it on top of pita bread and pizza sauce, cover with tin foil and put in the oven at 450 degrees. I forget how long I cook it for, though.<br><br><br><br>
I don't use the Follow Your Heart vegan cheeses for other recipes, just those snacks. I know, not very creative. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br><br><br>
I end up eating mine before it spoils.. I'd imagine it takes a week to go bad, if wrapped up properly.

I melt the mozzarella kind on buns (with the broiler) and make sandwiches with peppered tofurky, tomato, and onion.

I saw the Follow Your Heart vegan cheese at the local health food store. They only had the nacho flavor. I thought it may be good with tortilla chips. Anyone had this flavor and if you did, what did you think?<br><br><br><br>
I don't want to waste $4 on something that will be gross.

I like the mozzarella kind better, it's a lot easier to find stuff to do with it and it actually tastes (somewhat) good by itself. I have half a block of cheddar in the fridge at the moment that I'm probably going to slice up and eat with crackers.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Also, if you don't like the way it tastes alone, you can always use it as a topping for something. I make grilled veggies and sprinkle some of it on top of them, and it actually tastes pretty good. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

It tastes like molten lava. You have to really like spicy hot foods to eat this.<br><br><br><br>
I had it 50/50 with the moz flavour (can't seem to find cheddar anywhere for some reason) on nachos and it was pretty effing great, I thought. My wife said they were the best nachos she'd ever eaten.<br><br><br><br>
I think it would be good melted and served warm with tortilla chips.<br><br><br><br>
I use the moz as I would regular cheese.<br><br><br><br>
It's the basis of an alfredo sauce I make with soy creamer and nutritional yeast and garlic, etc.<br><br><br><br>
And I use it on pizza with good results.<br><br><br><br>
I've melted it and poured it on steamed veg.<br><br><br><br>
I've used it in an artichoke pie I made.<br><br><br><br>
Um. Yeah. In general it works more or less like the real thing. So use your experience with that and extrapolate. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
I actually don't mind the taste of the moz on its own. It's kind of an odd texture but I think it's the yum.<br><br><br><br>
I don't recommend freezing it unless you have to.

I finally found some of this locally, and was eager to try it because I'd heard so many good things. It was a disappointment. It doesn't melt until about 450 degrees, so that really limits the recipes I can use it in. Also, I got the jack flavor, and it seemed nearly tasteless to me.

I melt the nacho cheese in a sauce pan and dilute it with a bit of water to make it a bit runnier. Then I pour it onto my nachos. I usually do that BEFORE I cook the nachos but I imagine you could do it after too. I wouldn't try to use it as a dipping sauce though, since it hardens pretty fast after being melted.<br><br><br><br>
seusoman, I found it to be a huge disappointment at first too. Now I use it and while it's not the same, I'm far enough removed from cow's cheese that I can appreciate it on its own merits under the right circumstances. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

oh and I think my friend TJ must have wimpy taste buds. Yeah, it's got a bit of a kick, but it's not nearly as fiery as he tries to portray it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

I use the follow your heart cheddar to make mac and cheese.<br><br><br><br>
I brown onion and garlic in a pan with earth balance, then add oat milk and nutritional yeast to make a sauce. Then put the pasta in a casserole dish, mix in the nutritional yeast sauce, then put the cheddar on top. bake it at 450 for 15-20 mins, then stir it and mix all the cheddar in, then bake another 10-15 mins. it comes out really creamy, and all the cheddar melts.<br><br><br><br>
mmmm... now im craving mac and cheese

I use the mozarella type for our pizzas. We use ours up pretty quickly, too, once it's opened. Does anyone else find the cheddar type to smell too strong? I'm not sensitive to strong tastes and odors when it comes to the food department having always been adventurous with foods. However, I cannot stomach the smell of it. Sadly, this means I don't buy it even though my daughter loves it on her triscuits. Is it just me?

Well, I made bean burritos, and I cut some chunks off the cheese and microwaved it in a covered bowl. When it had melted, I poured it over the burritos. This was IMO much better than eating it plain and "raw".<br><br><br><br>
One thing was that I was shocked at how fast the stuff hardened when it was in its melted form--you weren't kidding! It hardened onto the side of the bowl in mid-pour.<br><br><br><br>
I agree that the smell is a little odd, the block smells and it gives off an odd lingering smell when cooking too. However, the taste of the melted cheese isn't overpowering, which is good.
