SO HOW'D IT GO?

Why won't my cheese melt!?!?! I got soft cheese but not melted cheese. I used the Follow Your Heart brand that everyone raves about. Does this cheese just take way longer than dairy cheese to melt?

Tofutti is the best for melting in my opinion, but it's chock full of hydrogenated oils. Sometimes I'll grill my sandwich and then just nuke it to make the cheese melt.

Yes, vegan cheese takes MUCH longer to melt than dairy cheese. Follow Your Heart is still the best for melting (faster than other brands). When I make grilled vegan cheese sandwiches, I grill them on a LOW heat, so it takes a long time before they burn. Then, cover your pan while it grills. This allows it to steam and melt much more quickly. You'll still need to be patient; it won't take forever (maybe 5-7 minutes?) but still longer than your regular grilled cheese. Try it, it works - and it is delicious! :-)
