I have no idea if these are possible, but I'd love to know if there are vegan cheeses meeting the following critieria:

  • Vegan.
  • NO tree nuts (maybe almonds)
  • NO TVP or other ingredients created in the last 50 years.
  • Meltable.
Not specifically for me, but for anyone whom I want to serve a good melty dish down the road. Meltable is critical, and being tree-nut free is also here.

Different Vegan Cheese Brands and My Mind is Kind of Blown:
  • Most Delicious.
  • Best Soft Cheese
  • Best Spreadable Pick
  • Best Vegan Mac
  • Daiya Zesty Cheddar Style Deluxe Cheeze Sauce
  • UPrise Foods NOOCH IT!
  • Annie's Organic Vegan Shells & Creamy Sauce (12-Pack)
  • Bragg Nutritional Yeast Seasoning

I'll have to check ingredients, along with meltability.

I second violife. The grated cheddar style is reasonably meltable and their cream cheese us hood and is good in sauces. Not cheese, but mostly do a creme fraise substitute that is great.

It has been a while since I posted here, but I'm aiming for an early-mid March taste testing of recipes - or trying out commercial cheeses without tree nuts or a bunch of ingredients that remind me of fast food. The Mozz recipe Morning Glory posted up is first on the agenda.
I do have a recipe I developed for a vegan nut free cheese sauce. The sort of thing you would make for Macaroni Cheese or Cauliflower cheese. Basically a Vegan Mornay sauce. Would that be of interest?

The feta cheese I used when making a tribute recipe (see Tex-Mex Stuffed Peppers by Mountain Cat ) is fairly melt-able.
In particular, I have found the Violife Feta cheese works very well in baked Italian dishes like lasagna or baked spaghetti.

Here is the list of ingredients direct from Violife website. ( see article here )
  • Filtered Water
  • Coconut Oil
  • Potato Starch
  • Salt (Sea Salt)
  • Glucono Delta Lactone ( What is GDL? )
  • Flavor (vegan sources)
  • Olive Extract
  • Vitamin B12
