Today's Lunch: Grilled Cheese, Chili, Romaine Lettuce with Avocado


Even a gluten-free vegan can enjoy a grilled cheese, thanks to Daiya and Food for Life.  I was craving ooey gooey cheese the other day so I picked up a package of Daiya's shredded mozzarella and heaped a pile between two slices of Food for Life's brown rice bread.  The bread comes frozen, but once it's thawed in the microwave, it works really well spread with a little Earth Balance, then grilled in a frying pan. This cheese really does melt!


I completed the meal with a big bowl of chili and Romaine lettuce salad topped with fresh avocado.  This will keep me going for the next few hours while I grade papers.

What a great idea! Nothing better than good comfort food for dinner in the front of the fire.

WOW! Yum. I love "real" grilled cheese, (I'm a L/O veg,) but I might have to try this Daiya stuff!

Daiya is the closest vegan cheese to the "real thing," and it works really well in a sandwich like this! Definitely give it a try - most health food stores carry it.

The chili on the lettuce looks divine, and oh, that avocado!!

Yeah, that avocado was pretty close to perfect, almost sweet even. And who says you can't combine fats??!
