Daiya cheese is my preferred vegan cheese for pizza, chili cheese fries, cheeseburgers…ALL the cheesy vegan foods. Daiya is the best vegan cheese because it tastes and melts like the real thing.
My friend Elizabeth tipped me off about Daiya’s new cheese wedges and I just had to try them. After finishing up my shift at Earthfare I purchased some gluten-free crackers and a Daiya cheese wedge. Earthfare has an aisle FULL of crackers (many are vegan, some are gluten-free). I had no idea Edward & Sons made crackers but since I LOVE their vegan bouillon cubes (especially the ‘chicken’ flavor!) I had to try these crackers. I wanted a plain cracker since I wanted the cheese to be the main flavor experience.
I chose the jack style wedge because I used to nosh on pepper jack cheese back in my non-vegan days. I learned that I need to garnish each cracker with a currant, raisin, or a few pieces of roasted red pepper for a finished presentation. I learned that from watching Queer Eye for the Straight Guy today! Thanks Ted Allen! I love that show so much.
This cheese is sooo good. It tastes rich and creamy just like real cheese with no strange aftertaste. I’m totally going to make a vegan and gluten-free grilled cheese with this tomorrow. CAN’T WAIT.
Daiya wedges are also available in cheddar and jalapeno garlic havarti. I expect I will be in a cheese coma as soon as I get my hands on the jalapeno garlic cheese.
