Vegan Chilli Cheese Toast

I have been a vegetarian all my life but I do eat dairy ie cheese, milk, yoghurt and milk base products. However my daughter recently changed to a vegan diet, so I have been trying lots of substitutions for dairy products that I can use in my vegan recipes so she too can enjoy all the food that I cook.

One of our favorite lunches is Chilli cheese toast, basically this is a delux vegetable packed spicy cheese on toast. I tried to recreate it using the Violife vegan cheese. 

Violife is an alternate to cheese, it is a plant based product which is free from dairy, soya, gluten, lactose, nuts and preservatives. Its is made from coconut oil, modified starch, salt and vitamin B12. You enjoy them sliced in your sandwiches, spread on your bagel, sprinkled on your pasta or melted on your pizza. Violife is the vegan alternative to cheese that tastes and cooks great! It resembles grated cheddar in appearance, it does soften upon grilling but does not go brown like normal cheese. The flavour is similar to dairy cheese and its a great cheese substitute.

There is a variety of products available in the Violife range, some that I have tried are:

Violife Le Rond Camembert  flavour is soft, round and creamy. It can be baked it in the oven or microwaved. It can be served with vegetable crudites, crackers and crisps. It is perfect appetiser to present at any party with a glass of wine.

Violife Original Flavour slices,this classic flavour that gives you your cheesy taste. Its great in a tastycheese salad or cheese ploughmans sandwich and can also be grilled to make a cheese toasty.  

Violife Smoky Cheddar flavour Slices are delicious served with warm crusty bread or rolled up with olives and sundried tomatoes. This makes a delicious starter to serve with a glass of red wine. 

Violife Epic Mature is a really nice crumbly texture that is great grated or cut in cubes to serve with cheese and pineapples . It has great robust flavour that is perfect for sandwiches and wraps or grated on pies and pasta too.

For my Vegan Chilli cheese toast I used the Violife ready grated cheese, it is convenient to use and comes in a handy resealable bag so it remains fresh even after opening. 
The Violife range is available from most large supermarket, such as Tesco, Sainsburys and Asda.

The chilli cheese toast recipe is really easy and can be made in less than 10 minutes. It has lots of healthy ingredients and the perfect balanced lunch to enjoy.

  1. I have never tried any vegan products before, it's great that you have found a good brand for your daughter.

  2. There's so much more choice when it comes to vegan cheese now than there has been. I did a few months vegan quite a lot of years ago just to force myself to try new things and there wasn't a lot, and even less good cheese substitutes x

  3. This sounds great. I tried one of their other products recently and it was yummy, can't wait to try these too!!!

  4. I have never trried vegan cheese before, but we do love cheese and it is great there is such a range now that vegans can still enjoy cheese

  5. This looks so nice! I will have to let my sister know about these cheese. She is a vegan and can't find any vegan cheese she likes

  6. I'm actually not Vegan, but not paying attention once I picked this up at the supermarket and no one was more surprised than me that I liked it. I think they are one of the best vegan cheese brands on the market!

  7. Good to know about Wiolife, vegan cheese. The chilli cheese toast looks tasty and makes a good dinner option for us.

  8. Ooh, this looks absolutely delicious. I've just spent the last week and a half feeling really poorly (and have hardly eaten), so my mouth is watering like crazy right now! Although I'm not actually vegan, I LOVE a lot of vegan dishes, so it's always nice to find something new to try. We even incorporate a lot of plant-based products into our diets now :)
