Recently, we ordered Vegusto‘s Starter Pack, which offers a selection of their products for only £10. I was very pleased with the contents of the package, but one product stood out from the rest: the No-Moo Melty.
When I opened the cheese, I have to admit I wasn’t convinced that my experience would go too well. The No-Moo Melty is a sausage shaped, soft stick of cheese, difficult to slice (it just squashes) and a little bit crumbly. I persevered and put some on my tomato toastie.
As you can see in the picture, the cheese is rather squidged, but a pleasant colour apart from the yellow flecks of, er, something. I shoved the assembled toastie into the Panini Press (yes, we have such gadgets) and waited for about 5 minutes.
I was so pleasantly surprised when I saw and tasted the results. The cheese had melted almost completely, and tasted EXACTLY like lower-budget mozzarella would. In fact, I think this tastes like the paninis you can buy in coffee shops. If you own a coffee shop and are looking for a vegan cheese option for your hot sandwiches, this is the one to go for. It’s not cheap, but reasonably priced in the world of vegan cheese. 400g (two rolls) will cost you £7.50, and since this is something that you probably wouldn’t buy every week, I don’t think this is too bad.
Have you tried No-Moo Melty? What’s your favourite vegan cheese?
