We bought a package of this cheese (the nacho variety) but we have not tried it yet. I will let you know how it is after we taste it. Another company that makes completly dairy free cheese is www.tofutti.com (They make cheese slices that taste exactly like normal processed cheese- its incredible) They also make frozen desserts, soygurt, and a cream cheese and sour cream substitute. We were using their Sour Supreme procduct and we were buying it at Safeway but our Safeway has recently discontinued it. We should all fill out product request forms for these and other dairyfree products.

Made the pizza and it turned out pretty good! The 'cheese' didn't melt as much as would have liked but I may have over cooked it. The website says it works better in a moist atmosphere so we might try as a topping for a casserole.
Dd seemed to like it shredded and raw as she was gobbling it dwn instead of putting it on the pizza. :roll:
Maybe I'll just feed it to her like that. It beats heating up the house in the summer! :lol:

Hi, just wanted to let you know I use the Tofutti brand "cream cheese" to make cream cheese icing for carrot cake, for my daughter who is milk and egg-allergic, and served it to a large group of friends and no one knew the difference. It tastes identical to real cream cheese - definitely recommended! Has anyone tried the Tofutti "sour cream" yet? Is it worth a try?

The Sour Supreme is excellent in sweet desserts like Ambrosia. We serve our Ambrosia to everyone and no one suspects it's non dairy. We have also used Sour Supreme as a topping for tacos and it's very close to the real thing. We have also made onion dip with it and at first the taste wasn't quite as good- edible but not as zippy as with real sour cream --but I found that by adding several drops of lemon juice the "zippiness" was restored and the dip became scrumptious.

Ambrosia (literally "food of the gods") is a very simple dessert.

one can mandarin oranges
one can crushed pineapple
one cup mini marshmallows
one cup flaked coconut
one cup Tofutti sour supreme

First you drain the pineapple and mandarin (save the juice, you can drink it or use it for something else)
Mix the ingredients in a bowl and place it in the fridge (to chill, to set and to let the flavours blend. The coconut and marshmallows also soften up giving the dessert a creamier texture) So it's better if you wait a few hours or even overnight but sometimes I just eat it right away.... Yummy... very pretty in the bowl too, I like to smooth out the top so it's level.

Hope you enjoy it!
