The majority of people I’ve spoken to who are thinking about trying the vegan lifestyle are all still hooked on cheese.
I’ve discovered an alternative, a dairy free cheese; also free from hydrogenated fats, gluten, artificial colours/preservatives, cholesterol and GMOs and none of the nasties found in regular cheese.
It’s a soy based cheese tasting even more exotic than the feta cheese you might be used to and it’s karma free as the Hare Krishnas would say – in other words, contains no animal products.
The product is called Cheezly (the spread is called Sheese) and comes in a large number of “flavours” (I put flavours in quotes as these flavours are created using herbs but taste even better than the real thing used to taste). In Jo’burg, it’s widely available in most Pick & Pay and Checkers branches, in Cape Town, only a couple of the larger branches actually stocks it and it usually evaporates of the shelves the same day the new stock arrives.
I’m off to go try out some new recipes, hope you manage to get your hands on some of this amazing cheezly!
