The Ultimate Guide to Vegan Cheese

Compassionate people across Australia and New Zealand are abandoning cruelly produced dairy foods and turning to healthy, delicious dairy-free options instead.


In addition to delectable plant-based milksyoghurtice cream and sour cream, there’s also an abundance of vegan cheese options to choose from. Whether you’re looking for a tasty topping for a pizza, a decadent filling for a cheese toastie, a cruelty-free way to make a cheesecake or simply something to chuck on a sandwich, there’s sure to be a vegan cheese for you. And it’s becoming so popular, there is a whole online store devoted to it.

Here’s a list of the plethora of vegan cheeses available. Happy eating!

We made this vegan cheese platter for @thechampagnegoddess to share with a group of lovely ladies who joined her on a trip to Tasmania’s renowned Effervescence Festival. None of them vegan (I don’t think), but all keen epicureans, interested in trying something a bit different. We love that! . . . . #artisa #artisaplantbasedcheese #vegancheese #dairyfree #fermentedfood #whatveganseat  #hobartgreenguide  #tassiefood #vegantasmania #sydneyveganguide #melbourneveganguide #vegancheeseplatter
