I wanted to make a budget vegan nacho cheese as a more affordable alternative to our regular vegan nacho cheese. We opted to use chickpeas instead of nuts but the end result is just as tasty! On the spicy meter this nacho cheese is mild but you can adjust the spiciness to your liking by adjusting the amount of cayenne powder in the recipe. This vegan cheese is also very easy to make!

I used to love melting some vegan pepper Jack cheese on a black bean burger back home, however, to my knowledge vegan pepper Jack cheese is not available here in Europe. So, I decided to make a vegan pepper Jack cheese of my own recently. I made one I was pretty satisfied with! After making it a few times though, I got a crazy idea to take it one step further after Boutique Vegan sent us this BBQ sauce. A whole new recipe was born: vegan pepper Jake cheese! Vegan pepper Jake cheese is mildly spicy with a hint of sweet and tangy underlying the obviously “cheesy” tone. Not only is this recipe quick and easy but it is another installment in our budget recipes category.
Here it is, as promised in our recent vegan smoked cheddar cheese recipe: vegan cheesesteak! This savory vegan sandwich can be made using homemade vegan cheese, condiments and gluten free vegan bread. Some people like this vegan sub style sandwich with or without condiments. If you like it without any condiments, it would be a good idea to make the vegan smoked cheddar cheese recipe using a little more oil. If you do like condiments, we have included a list of some of our most popular recipes below. Let’s get started:
We usually make most of our vegan cheeses using almonds or cashews as the base ingredient. However, I wanted to try something different as a way of keeping the cost down when making vegan cheese. As a result this vegan smoked cheddar cheese dip recipe is made using chickpeas (garbanzo beans). The flavor is amazing and the recipe is simple. We have been making this delicious snack a lot since coming up with the recipe a few months ago now. Give it a whirl!
This vegan smoked cheddar works great as a spread or sandwich condiment as well. As you can see in the photos, we enjoyed it in a vegan “cheese steak” sandwich made using soy “steaks”. Click here for the vegan cheesesteak recipe!

This chipotle BBQ vegan cheese dip is one of my favorite snacks I’ve ever made! We use our own homemade barbecue sauce in it but you can use whatever bbq sauce you prefer to make it. I first came up with this recipe about 4 years ago now and it’s been a hit with everybody who has tried it ever since! It is an incredibly easy and simple recipe to make as well as a great appetizer or snack when you are in a hurry. This recipe makes a lot of dip (6 cups or 1420 ml) so make sure your blender can hold that much or you might have to cut the recipe in half.
Today we are going to take a break from our nutrition series (for those of you following us) to talk about Meatout – eat vegan for a day. Meatout is a day to encourage all people to try a vegan diet for a day. We think it would be great if more people tried a vegan diet. Obviously we feel vegan food is real and delicious despite rumors circulating stating the contrary. Therefore we decided to compile this list of some recipes we think non-vegans would love to eat today (and maybe even ask for seconds!)! Our nutrition series information will be coming soon for our readers who are waiting for it. Continue reading Meatout – Eat Vegan For A Day
Kick back and watch your favorite movie tonight and enjoy it with some vegan nacho cheese! This is one of my personal favorites. It’s not for everybody because it has a little kick to it; ye be warned! Continue reading Vegan Nacho Cheese Dip
Who does not love a simple, quick and easy snack recipe? What could be quicker than opening a bag of chips and taking 5 minutes to make a dip? Thanks to the vegan original cream cheese by Violife we present this vegan sour cream and cheddar dip! Before I was a vegan, I loved sour cream and cheddar chips. I am extremely pleased how well this recipe turned out. Here is how we did it:
We were recently contacted by the Greek company Viotros telling us about their new vegan cheese slices made without preservatives.

It has been a long time since I have had a soft pretzel with cheese. After our 30 day raw vegan challenge was over this was the first thing I wanted to attempt to make. Working without gluten can be difficult when trying to form shapes with dough but I think these gluten free vegan soft pretzels with cheese turned out great for my first attempt! Here is how I did it: Continue reading Gluten Free Vegan Soft Pretzels with Cheese
