Re: Dairy free meals

Daiya is actually pretty good melted and cooked in things (on pizza, in enchiladas, making mac n cheese ect) but I personally don't like it on things like salad. Other people like it though. Most other "vegan" cheeses aren't actually vegan as they have some casein or whey in them so they don't work for my casein sensitive child. My guy can have goat cheese but I am not 100% certain that I can so I'm being careful about it. I cook mostly vegan.

Re: Dairy free meals

for meat recipes look up kosher recipes- they will omit the milk in their ingredients

Re: Dairy free meals

iris I haven't tried it melted yet, only in salads. I will try to melted to see if I like it better. Thanks for the tip.

Tobin Oh, thanks for the idea about kosher. Off to google...

LOL! I guess it doesn't does it? Its actually not bad melted on things but like pp said I would not eat it as is. I have made pizza and grilled cheese for my ds and they were both ok. I am not going to say it compared to a good cheddar or mozzarella but it is something we are ok with eating again.

Re: Dairy free meals

How do you make mac and cheese with Daiya? We're nut free too so it can't use cashews. We've tried a nutritional yeast sauce and dd didn't really want it. granted she is not use to have anything on her noodles they are usually only tossed in olive oil, but she wouldn't touch the yeast mac and cheese.

This is the recipe I use. You add the daiya at the end (I use the cheddar flavor version) and it is excellent. I also use a bit of dijon mustard. The boys absolutely love it, better than boxed which is saying something. I'm lazy and use frozen cauliflower so I can keep most of the ingredients on hand.
