We’re a sucker for innovative plant-based food trends. Some are a major flop (never could get into the macadamia nut milk or canned vegan tuna) and some are forever keepers (cashew cheese!) Here are our newest picks for keeper turf! Buy them and serve them before your neighbors do, and allow yourself to feel an unwarranted sense of entitlement.
Sunflower cheese made me want to hurl with the name, for some reason, but when I say it’s DELISH – I mean it’s as good as cashew cream cheese, if not better, and the goat cheese is the most perfect vegan goat cheese dupe we’ve ever tried. It’s nearly inextricable from it’s dairy neighbor. This brand is also making a killer egg substitute. Spero is one to watch in the gourmet vegan space! These cheeses are also genius for nut-free peeps and no-nut schools.
Sweet, spicy, and fabulously packaged – these artisanal candies are naturally flavored with a hint of chili lime and sea salt. We love having these in a bowl when friends are over for cocktails. Colored with turmeric, beet powder, annatto, and spirulina extract – and flavored with fruit – these tiny treats are the perfect gift basket addition. Candy, but make it adult.
Tiny packets aren’t just for the white death (sugar!) anymore! Perfectly portioned packs of turmeric to make sure to get your daily amount? Genius! Toss them in your bag, and put one on top of your salad, burrito bowl, or latte to get your daily health boost. You can buy this high potency Fijian turmeric in a large package on amazon too!
