Easy Vegan Grilled Cheese

The Ingredients:

For this recipe, you will need:

As you can see, it’s pretty simple and straight forward. I’ve used my homemade vegan mozzarella recipe for the filing. Because it’s perfect for melty and stretchy cheese that’s full of flavour. I love using it for this grilled cheese, lasagna, and basically any recipe where I’m looking for melty stretchy cheese.

What’s the best vegan cheese for grilled cheese

Certainly, there are some good vegan mozzarella brands to buy, instead of making it yourself. Which offer consistency that’s also melty and stretchy. I’m not opposed to these brands. In fact, I use them from time-to-time for parties and entertaining.

However, the nutrition facts for store-bought vegan mozzarella can be a tad unhealthy. Since they use ingredients like starches, gums and carrageenan for longer shelf-life.

No doubt, making vegan mozzarella at home is a healthy solution. You know exactly what’s gone into it – no preservatives or additives. The recipe is minimal and can be made in just 10 minutes. So you can feel confident in knowing exactly what you’re putting in your body.

Vegan Mozzarella Cheese Recipe

How to make a vegan grilled cheese

Making this vegan grilled cheese couldn’t be easier. Simply lather two pieces of bread with vegan butter and sprinkle with sea salt. I like to lather both sides so that even the inside of your grilled cheese will be crispy. (It’s a little trick of mine for extra gourmet grilled cheese).

Bring a skillet to medium heat and toast the bread slices until golden in colour, then flip and toast the other side. Once it’s ready, finish by lathering each toast with vegan mozzarella, and then flip one slice of bread onto the other. Voila, now you’ve got an ultra comforting, salty and savoury grilled cheese that’s ready to be devoured.

  1. I made this grilled cheese for lunch for both my husband and I. We were so impressed! It tastes sooo good! Much better than the store bought brands. My husband use to LOVE dairy cheese but wants to eat vegan. Having this recipe, that he really enjoys, is making it much easier for him to eat vegan!! We can’t wait to try it with Tostitos chips, salsa and guacamole next!

    • So happy you enjoyed the recipe Krystal! My husband loves this one too – makes it much easier for him to swap the cheese for cheeze. hehe. Enjoy it!
