Need a simple and satisfying lunch? This alternative grilled cheese is perfect for those who want comfort food without a long cooking commitment. Best of all, it’s 100% plant-based!
All you need is bread, olive oil, Daiya “cheese”, and your favorite vegetables.
I don’t recommend the Trader Joe’s soy cheese in the picture. It works, but it doesn’t compare to Daiya.
Since Daiya “cheese” is dairy-free, it doesn’t melt at the same speed. To prevent burning the bread on the skillet, I recommend microwaving the sandwich first. Microwave until the cheese is slightly melted, and then crisp the bread on the skillet (with olive oil).

- “This is good!”
Doug Brown 10/10
- “That was satisfying and it felt very wholesome because of the substantial bread, the “cheese” was creamy, and vegetables were fresh. I think if food like this was served in the dining hall, people would be up for it. I like trying alternatives like this.”
Diego John 10/10
- “Normally I’m not a fan of grilled cheese. This is very similar to the regular version, but very good! It’s the bomb!”
