vegan cheese collage with text: vegan cheese recipes to help you quit dairy!

Are you interested in trying out the whole vegan thing, but you have a hard time imagining giving up cheese? Trust me, I’ve been there! Cheese was the hardest thing for me to stop eating, and I totally get it. But I’m here to tell you it is more than possible to quit dairy for good, and with these vegan cheese recipes, you won’t miss it at all. Really!

When I went vegan nearly 10 years ago, the non-dairy cheese options at grocery stores were quite limited compared to now. And while I’m so thankful for convenient vegan cheese shreds and slices I can pick up, I prefer to mostly make my own cheese or cheesy recipes at home using whole foods. Not only are they less expensive, they make me feel better and often they taste better! 

I’ve gathered up a bunch of really great cheesy vegan recipes, with some help from my other vegan blogger friends! You will find a mix of vegan cheese recipes, like cheese sauces, stretchy mozzarella, queso dips, cheese balls, sliceable & grateable cheeses, as well as recipes featuring vegan cheese, such as quesadillas, mac and cheese and lasagna. Enjoy!
