RE: Dietitian View on Vegan Cheese substitute
Posted Friday, September 7, 2012 at 10:39 AM
I am not a dietitian.. I used to try to replace the cheese with the vegan cheese products. I found they were no sub for the "real" thing. A pizza w/cheese sub just left me thinking i wanted the real one back..
i tired hummus as a sub.. yuck.. I think I tried a couple other things too... that didn't turn out so good.. trying to get a texture of cheese.. but again there just was no comparison.
So i said, well i am going to forget trying to get something compareable.. it was very freeing to find i can make a delious pizza without cheese or a cheese sub. Now it is just tomato sauce or not.. and veggies.
When i really want the cheese feel.. the nutrional yeast is great in some recipes.. and then nacho mama's vegan queso for dipping chips. (it is all veggies and nutrional yeast-no fat.)
