This stuff melts superbly in the microwave, especially atop a Five Star Foodies Artichoke Burger (ECSTASY). Crumbly morsels melted into a pool of gooey, cheesy goodness as a sinful accompaniment to an already divine-tasting burger… add a little Vegenaise and some greens and you’re good to go, holmes.
But how do the shreds hold up in the oven? Hmm, not as well as Daiya. I topped a ready-made crust with sauce, artichokes (noticing a theme here?), onions, olives, red peppers, and shreds and popped it in the oven at (I think) 350 for 10-15 minutes. The shreds never became melty, but when I poked them (tee hee) they were soft and stretchy. I was kinda hoping for a pool of gobbly-gooey cheese-mess on the pizza… but, oh well. It was still delicious!
The shreds don’t taste much like Daiya – I find them a bit more tart and with their own unique flavor. Not much like what I remember of mozzarella, either, but that’s a 4+ year memory. Galaxy Vegan Shreds are a nice change-up from Daiya and melt fantastically in the microwave. I wonder how they’ll do in a sauce!
Have you tried them yet?
