OH. MY. CHEESE.
This is my holy grail of cheeses. I never thought this was even possible. But I was wrong! Vegan brie exists, and I have found it in my local Whole Foods. The taste and texture are incredible. Better yet, it is made from almonds instead of tofu, so that’s a win for those of us with a sensitivity to soy. If you can find it, it’s the “Soft Ripened” cheese from Kite Hill, and they have several other varieties that are also amazing. I’ve heard of some other companies that make vegan cheeses similar to this one and am now on a mission to try as many as I can. But we’re getting off topic, so let me tell you about this sandwich.
THIS SANDWICH. The first time I tried this sandwich with real brie, I loved it so much that I had it every day for a month. It’s such a simple sandwich, but it is perfection. It makes me feel like Remy in Ratatouille, discovering the different flavor combinations I can make with a simple cheese.
The minute I tried the Kite Hill cheese I knew I could finally have my favorite sandwich again. The mild, nutty flavor of the brie cheese pairs perfectly with sweet and tart green apples. It is simple, flavorful, and amazing.
My dad and I have been snacking on this cheese for days. I pair it with crackers, cashews, and raspberry jam (pictured on the left), because why not. Brie baked in pie dough? YES I CAN. It’s happening next week. Really, just put it on everything. The possibilities are endless! If you have some great brie-inspired recipes or vegan cheeses that you love, please share them in the comments below! 🙂
