Vegan cheese sounds like a somewhat of a misnomer. But it’s very real, and very delicious. And serendipitously, goes down an absolute treat with a glass of wine. (Cue happy dance!)
Such a tantalising combination might even get the most ardent flesh eater in a lather. So what are you waiting for? Maybe it’s time to host your very own vegan cheese and wine party.
But first dear friends, you’d better whip up some cheeses. Far from being complicated, most recipes are straightforward and the end result is worth it.
Start with a simple cream cheese such as this beauty from One Green Planet, comprising three base ingredients and yielding a deliciously creamy, yet tangy cheese which can be rolled with a selection of spices (cracked pepper, red pepper, paprika and mixed dried herbs).
Soft Cheeses pair best with wines such as Sauvignon Blanc and Rose.
Sharp Cheeses such as this pocket rocket go well with a full-bodied red, such as a lusty Shiraz, or indeed any good red.
With the party in full-swing and the empty bottle count rising, it’s time to roll out a sweet ending. Add some delicious vegan chocolate truffles to the table and pair with a lovely sweet dessert wine.
The guests will swoon, cheeks will be flushed, and by nights end the table is guaranteed to be empty.
Vegan cheese and wine party – nailed it!
