    Well, I actually really like the taste of the super melting Cheezley, though I don't eat it incredibly often. I just thought the Scheese had an overpowering aftertaste and I wasn't that keen on the texture.

    I agree Twinkle. I like cheezly but the scheese is pretty odd. It smells funny as well. I tried them cheese slices a few years ago and they were horrible. I think they were the Tofutti ones but never again.

    is that jus-roll pastry? do you think it tastes incredibly buttery for something that is supposed to be vegan?! it's a bit rich for me. I bet my hubby would love those cheese straws though

    How do people find the vegan cheeses raw? We only really have cheesly mozzarella super melting, it's fab on a pizza but that's about all I can really enjoy it on! Might be to do with it having been in the oven or something. My hubby put some 'grated' on top of spaghetti last night, but after a few mouthfuls with the cheesely I just wasn't getting on with it and had to push it off. I'm not too fond of in in a toasted sandwich either, unless it's with something else and quite a small amount.

    In a saucepan melt some butter and soya milk, put some puff pastry onto a baking sheet and cut into strips. Brush the butter/ milk liquid onto the strips, grate cheezly [I use Gouda, its the best] onto the strips and brush some more of the liquid onto the strips. Bake at around 180c until the cheese has melted and it looks all yummy, take out the oven, cool for as long as you can bare and EAT!

    On Cumin's recommendation I bought some hickory smoked scheese today. I'd gone in to the health food shop to find some super-melting cheezly, but when there wasn't any I thought I'd go with the suggestion and try it out. Based on my last encounter was scheese, I was expecting it to be disgusting, but the smoked stuff is LOVELY!! I'm shocked! I've been avoiding all scheese all this time!

    I work at Papa Johns, and tried some Gauda Cheezly on a pizza, and its so lovely!! Had it with jalapenos&onions. Dont put too much on, but its so much better than having a cheeseless pizza, but without too strong a taste. I would think that most branches would let you take your own cheese in, or if you live near Surbiton [Kingston] pop in and I'll make you a vegan one!

    Hallucinating? ? You mean, imagining that I was seeing scheese when it was actually something else, or , urm, hatastilating??

    I've had it again since it turned into sheese and I still like it. It's quite strong though. I couldn't eat a lot in one go.

    I'm glad you liked it Cherry. They've updated the recipe lately and I think it's even better. Plus the cheddar one is edible now too.

    i think so? it was white as was the mashed spuds..so i think so..if that doesn't sound too dim of me. i'm gonna try some in a toastie with some tomatoes..maybe some roast veg..and i'm gonna try putting some on pasta (variations of pasta and roast veg etc etc) and pop it in the oven for a bit. might be adventurous and make a lasagne..ohh..i miss those.haven't tried doing white sauce with soya milk cos i was one of those lazy ppl who bought tubs of fresh cheesy sauce for lasagnes...but i think the packet of cheezly might've ran out by then..and i'm not altogetehr sure that i want to buy any more?

    i'm provisionally putting cheezly into the same category as brandy snaps..for me personally..i don't see the point..but i'll reserve proper judgment until after i've made some of the above

    I tried some of the new 'Sheese' soft vegan cheese the other day an to my disappointment it tasted as bad as all the other vegan cheeses I've tried. It looked so promising too. I'm definitely giving up on vegan cheese.

    There are no un-cheeses available here. I have tried some, I think by Redwood in the UK and feel that it all tastes chemically..I don't feel good eating it and can't pretend it's normal cheese because that doesn't feel right either..Maybe these new ones are better. I think I have a kind of psychological problem with these cheeses....If that makes any sense.
    I have had some success with the Uncheese cookery book. Because I have actually made them myself I feel better about what's in them..Maybe I'm just a culinary control freak!!

    I dont think so auntirozzi, i feel exactly the same... vegan cheese tastes weird... kind of like plastic (not that i eat plastic but still!)... and also they look weird.. i dont think they are a good selling point to promote veganism!

    I came across this recently at a local asian store, which surprisingly stocks a massive range of vegan and organic products (much cheaper than most health food stores). Personally, I thought it was so much tastier than the Tofutti stuff, and better still it contains no hydrogenated fats! Although admittedly I can't really remember what it's supposed to taste like...

    Also solves the "possible non-vegan sugar" dilemma re Tofutti cream cheese

    On another note, I'm not really a big fan of other vegan cheeses, e.g. Cheezly - but has anyone tried the Cheezly cranberry stuff? Any good? I used to love Wensleydale cheese back when I was a veggie...

    I've tried the cranberry cheesely, they were giving away samples at the London vegan fest. Can't say I was that impressed, but then I've never been a huge fan of sweet things in cheese anyway. I didn't really like the Scheese soft spread, and prefer the Tofutti, so it seems our tastes aren't that similar and you might like it!

    Gauda Cheezly, tomato puree and onions in a toastie, made in a toastie maker.
    SO GOOD!
    Eat it quick and its identical to a real cheese toastie.
    Leave it a little and the cheese goes a bit funny!

    You're right Troutina, I definitely think that eating it straight away stops you thinking too hard! If there's any hanging around afterwards it does lose something..

    I really liked the cranberry cheezly, on crackers - so yum!

    I have found that that the cheezlys seem to need a quite high heat to melt properly. But watch out in your toasties as they can be liquid and boiling hot, and solidify quickly if they spill onto you.

    Not wanting to disrespect vegan cheese in a vegan cheese thread, but sometimes pizza is better without it. To me pizza is about fantastic bread and being able to taste the fantastic toppings. Drowning out this with cheese seems somewhat of a waste to me.

    Yes, pizza can be lovely just with vegetables, and I like homemade bases

    However, my son, who has only been vegan for around 18 months, wants to try a vegan pizza with cheese. He's a VERY picky eater so this is the third time of trying, I do hope now he has forgotten the taste/texture of cow cheese he might just like Cheezly...........we need another dish to add to his list!

    Also, he disliked my homemade base before so I've bought some of those yukky cardboard type shop-bought ones! .

    I like the Tofutti cream cheese alternative. I have tried Yakso and Tofutti slices, but I did not like them. I saw Cheezly in a shop in Utrecht, but it was a big block and because I did not like the other brands, I decided not to buy it. Perhaps some other time. Yakso and Tofutti are the most available here. I did like the real thing a lot and the stuff I have tried so far did not match the taste of real cheese.

    neither actually. I have found tons of "vegetarian cheese" (like what the hell is that anyway) chock full of casein, whey etc etc. They have a million different names for cows milk.

    The galaxy foods one was so bad that I sent them an email telling them to wake up.

    I am not a fan of the vegan cheeses, most taste like BS to me. But there is one restaurant where the vegan cheese is amazing.

    http://www.veganplaza.com

    Their pizza is just amazing and I want to know what kind they use. Do you think it taboo for me to ask a restaurant what kind of vegan cheese they use?

    Maybe a vegan place will be more willing to tell me their secret versus a chain restaurant.

    oh hey Vegan Baby. I just went to Montreal for vacation in May and I found it difficult to find a place that had vegan food. I ate at Le Commensal almost every meal, but, even there, I found it hard to find something vegan. You must not eat out at all, eh?

    I notice the Quebecois are much more dairy oriented than other Canadians.

    follow your heart is a brand of cheeze that is excellent (I think) and is similar to veganrella (which I haven't had in a while -- years), but better. moz' flavor only, the ched' and 'jack don't get such high reviews at all. try it. report back!
