First, there was PB&J day (with delicious Pan-Fried PB&J Sandwiches!), and now we have arrived at National Grilled Cheese Day. Yes, it is sandwich week, and there is absolutely no reason why dairy-free and vegan consumers should be left out of the celebration. I know, I know, it is cheese. But we have some perfectly awesome recipes for enjoying a vegan grilled cheese sans dairy.
The Caprese Grilled Cheese Sandwich by Spork Foods – I had the pleasure of sampling this amazing tomato and pesto vegan grilled cheese sandwich at a special event – delish!
Aurora Borealis Grilled Cheese by Gwendolyn Mathers – This dessert-worthy vegan grilled cheese recipe won 3rd place in the Professional category of the 10th Annual Grilled Cheese Invitational at the Pasadena Rose Bowl. The delicious layers include Daiya mozzarella, Tofutti cream cheese, candied brandied peaches, maple buttery spread, and a berry reduction on sourdough.
Grilled Cheese Wafflewich Sliders by Kristina at Spabettie – These mini towers of flavorful goodness are made with homemade, dairy-free, egg-free, savory zucchini waffles. Genius!
