WholeSoy brand cream 'cheese'
Just popping in today to let y'all know about something I picked up in Trader Joe's the other day. I'd never seen it before, but it might be old hat to everyone else; I have no idea. The stuff is supposed to be a cream cheese substitute, but it's really nothing like cream cheese, so don't expect that. (it says 'soy spread' on the package right under the words "Cream Cheese Style.") I got the garlic and herb flavored one, and it is the bomb on crackers! I really like it. Just not on a bagel. And it says it's certified vegan, so you don't have to worry about them sneaking in casein or something like that. Has anyone else used it?
I use it and really like it...I have only used the plain variety though. I like to make vegan queso dip w/ it, use it on vegan muffalettas, and for cream cheese frosting on my coconut-carrot-macadmia-cake! I have tried the Tofutti kind (In the YELLOW tub...the white tub has TFA's for some reason) on bagels and it is good. I tried the Whole Soy last week when Whole Foods was out of Tofutti brand. I use the Whole Soy yogurt and it is good also! Hope this helps
What's a "muffaleta"?
A muffaletta is a sandwich which is a New Orleans tradition...it typically has various italian meats and cheeses, and alot of this really good olive salad along with some red wine vinegarette. I found a vegan version of it which calls for vegan cream cheese, avocado, hummus and the olive salad...it sounds weird but its yummy.
