Vegan Cheeses from L–>R: Chao’s, Treeline, Follow Your Heart, Miyoko’s and Heidi Ho.
A few weeks after I did the comparison of the five cheese above, I also bought a package of Chao’s Creamy Original, and put it up against the Follow Your Heart Provolone-style cheese in a meltability battle royale of grilled cheesy goodness. The verdict? Both were great! I do not feel the need to buy conventional dairy cheese for grilled cheese sandwiches anymore; both completely satisfied the grilled cheese craving for me in terms of taste and texture. For bread, I used the Alvarado St. Flax Seed Wheat (delicious!) and instead of butter on the outside I slathered on some of the Heidi Ho Smokey Chia Cheeze.
