Are you a cheese lover? I like cheese too, but since I became more conscious of my food choices, I try to avoid dairy cheese as much as I can. This melty cheese is good alternative to real cheese. This is good for anything; veggie dip, pasta, pizza or anything you like to have cheese in it. This is my adaption to a cheese recipe from “Give Them Something Better”.
