It’s World Vegan Day! We are big advocates of eating more plant-based to benefit the planet, animals, and our health! With so many new vegan products on the market, it can be difficult to know what to buy. That’s why our team of foodies tried all the vegan products on Spud, so you don’t have to! Below are some favourites from our staff as well as one of our favourite vegan recipes!
Our Favourite Vegan Cheese
Miyoko’s Organic Sharp-Aged Farmhouse – Taylor
“Best Vegan Cheese, perfect for grilled cheese”
Spread’Em Cashew Nacho Cheese – Emma
“Amazing on burritos, quesadillas and burrito bowls”
Pulse Kitchen Sharp Cashew Cheddar
Favorite for vegan charcuterie
Vio Life Epic Smoked Cheddar
Top pick among multiple Spud team members! This cheese gets super melty, perfect for burgers, paninis and grilled cheese. The subtle smoke flavour is really realistic to dairy cheese!
Best Vegan Butters
Earth’s Own Dairy-Free Butter Spread
“Creamy, flavourful, and well-seasoned; this is an excellent butter alternative for cooking. It’s my favourite for making toast because it spreads so beautifully and tastes so good! I also love that its palm-oil free, and locally made.” – Christine
Miyoko’s Organic Cultured Vegan Butter
Rich, well-balanced, and remarkably buttery; this vegan butter is perfect for baking. It makes the best pie crust! I also love it on popcorn, as it has such a classic buttery flavour. Because it has no palm oil or food additives, I feel good about treating myself to this little luxury.
Best Vegan Treats
Justin’s Peanut Butter Cups
“Best Peanut Butter Cups hands down” – Taylor
Dream Pops & Cookie Dough Bites
“The perfect little treat when you are craving something sweet”
Our Favourite Plant-Based Creamers
Plant-Veda Cashew Creamer
Super creamy and made with healthier ingredients!
Earth’s Own Oat Nog
A top pick from multiple Spud staff! Perfect for holiday sipping!
Our Favourite Ready to Eat Staples
Wholly Veggie Buffalo Cauliflower
“Adored by everyone in my household, my partners go-to dinner or quick lunch!”
WildBrine Spicy Kimchi Sriracha
“Not too spicy with a pickled, fermented flavour. I put this on everything” – Steph
