Product Review – Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup

I love grilled cheese & tomato soup. Love, Love, Love! It’s pretty much the only way I like vegan cheese. So I set out to try a few new things. I found FIG Food Co at Whole Foods. Easy to make (empty package, fill package with water or non-dairy milk, stir together, heat…done)

Wonderful flavor, not too salty or too sweet. Tasted great with the grilled cheese dipped in it!

Price: 2/$6.00

Overall Rating: 4 piggies – homemade might be better

The BF back in his PV days liked grilled cheese with ham on it. So we opted to try the Lightlife Smart Deli Ham. Um, it was a big failure. The BF did not like the taste of the ham at all. He said it was weird and he couldn’t even finish his grilled cheese. Bummer!

Price: $3.59

I opted to try two types of cheese’s. First theres the Follow Your Heart Cheddar. It was on sale and even said on the package “It Melts!”. I have no idea what it takes to melt this, but it did not melt. I grilled up my sandwich, even adding a few drops of water to the pan, then covering it to create steam to help the meltiung process…a slight softening of the cheese happened, but no real melting. Flavor was good, what I’d expect, didn’t have a weird texture, just didn’t melt!

Price: 2/$6.00

Overall Rating 2.5 piggies

Teese, from Chicago Soy Dairy was the second option I got. I’m a big fan of Teese and they’ve recently updated their products to make it more melty. No joke, this baby melted sans steam action. Creamy, melty, delicious. This cheese rocked.

Price: $3.99

Overall Rating 4.5 piggies (it’s my dislike of cheese that knocked it down 0.5)

As you can see here in my side by side compare…Follow Your Heart is on top – zero melty. Teese on the bottom – melty heaven!

Yes, the grilled cheeses & tomato soup rocked my world…or at least my lunch!

Chili – Two Ways

Chili with Noodles & Teese

Chili with Cornmeal Waffle & Teese

I made chili, and to use up some leftover waffles from my breakfast for dinner I thought I’d see how they went with chili…it was good! The chili was just made up of a bag of chili bean mix from the grocery store, a few cans of diced tomatoes, sauteed onions & garlic, ad various chili spices. Also tossed in some Teese at the end, because that’s good stuff!

Product Review – Grilled Teese and Tomato Soup

I’ve been craving grilled cheese. I finally decided to make some with some Cheddar Teese and serve it up comfort food style with a bowl of Tomato Soup. It turned out pretty well, although not as melty as I would have liked. I’m sure if I heated the sandwich up more it would have melted better, but then I’d have burnt bread.

Product Review – Teese

I finally went out and  picked up some Teese…I was contemplating a million different ways to try it out.

Sometimes I get a little over excited about new vegan products and want to come up with these best way possible to use it. After chatting witha friend who said anything would make it special since it’s new. I made a personal pizza on a tortilla…topped off with Teese and chowed down. Oh My Goodness…it was SO GOOD! I’m in love.
