Easy Vegan Grilled Cheese
For this recipe, you will need:
- vegan mozzarella
- sourdough bread
- vegan butter (or coconut oil)
- sea salt
As you can see, it’s pretty simple and straight forward. I’ve used my homemade vegan mozzarella recipe for the filing. Because it’s perfect for melty and stretchy cheese that’s full of flavour.

What’s the best vegan cheese for grilled cheese
Certainly, there are some good vegan mozzarella brands to buy, instead of making it yourself. Which offer consistency that’s also melty and stretchy. I’m not opposed to these brands. In fact, I use them from time-to-time for parties and entertaining.
However, the nutrition facts for store-bought vegan mozzarella can be a tad unhealthy. Since they use ingredients like starches, gums and carrageenan for longer shelf-life.
No doubt, making vegan mozzarella at home is a healthy solution. You know exactly what’s gone into it – no preservatives or additives. The recipe is minimal and can be made in just 10 minutes. So you can feel confident in knowing exactly what you’re putting in your body.
How to make a vegan grilled cheese
Making this vegan grilled cheese couldn’t be easier. Simply lather two pieces of bread with vegan butter and sprinkle with sea salt. I like to lather both sides so that even the inside of your grilled cheese will be crispy. (It’s a little trick of mine for extra gourmet grilled cheese).
Bring a skillet to medium heat and toast the bread slices until golden in colour, then flip and toast the other side. Once it’s ready, finish by lathering each toast with vegan mozzarella, and then flip one slice of bread onto the other. Voila, now you’ve got an ultra comforting, salty and savoury grilled cheese that’s ready to be devoured.
