Galaxy Foods Vegan Cheese and Hummus
I was excited to receive these goods... vegan cheese and hummus! Galaxy Foods has created an amazing Vegan line of products much superior to their vegetarian offerings in my humble opinion. I have compared them to their Veggie Slices/Shreds and find their Vegan offerings SO much better! I am actually excited about this vegan cheese! I have opened the block cheddar... and have had it cold on a sandwich and I really love the flavor.
Now, I have to be honest. Cheese is my biggest weakness, but these products totally hit the mark for me. I don't know how it melts yet, but will be sure to report my findings. The flavor is delicious and I'm thrilled that none of their products contain hydrogenated oils. They do contain corn syrup solids which is my only objection. Still, MUCH better than tofutti slices in taste an nutritional valiue.
Here is the rice slice on a grilled cheese. You can see how wonderfully it melts. It was totally satisfying and I will definitely buy this to have around.
The rice cheddar... very delicious on a cold sandwich as well... at only 45 calories per slice, it is a great alternative to dairy cheese and other vegan slices.
I will be utilizing the rest of the goods soon... so look forward to those posts! For now, I can say that I am much more impressed with the Galaxy Foods Vegan Cheeses than I thought I would be! Also, the chipotle hummus I've tried was fantastic... and I'm looking forward to tasting the rest of the hummus they sent.
