Vegan Cheese 🧀

I really love cheese, always have – but these days I prefer not to consume dairy. I have tried many different vegan cheeses, some good, some bland and some AMAZING! I have either met or conversed over social media with the people who make these yummy products in Australia and all of them were gracious and friendly – which means a lot to me. They are all passionate about what they do and in creating something that isn’t just tasty, but also healthy and kind to the planet. Check out their websites listed below for their other delicious products which I also love (especially Kehoes Kimchi, Peace Love and Vegetables Kraut and Botanical Cuisine raw pesto!).
