Vegan Caprese Sandwich

I quit meat “cold turkey” when I became a vegetarian overnight about 3 years ago. See what I did there? But cheese…now that was a different story! After being a vegetarian for almost a year, it took another 6 months to transition to being vegan. All because of cheese and milk. I could not see how I was going to live without them. Then I realized, I don’t want or need to use animal products just because I want a snack when there are tons of other options out there.

I didn’t like vegan cheese for a LONG time but this week I finally found a cheese that is melty and great for toasted sandwiches. It’s the “Go Veggie pepper jack” cheese slices. So melty, did I mention that already? And delicious too.

Enjoy this simple lunch or lazy Sunday dinner on us.
