make this stage easier and full of taste. Finding out that you can get cheese alternatives in such an easy and genuine way proves once again that in vegan cooking everything is possible.

Creamy and easy to spread

Loved by adults and children, vegetable stracchino is the perfect ingredient to make irresistible our snacks during the day. It is great for savory breakfasts, snacks, to fill sandwiches and wraps or to be enjoyed with raw vegetables, and in many other ways. The ingredient that gives a flavour similar to the original to this and other plant-based cheeses is the nutritional yeast in flakes, a deactivated yeast very nutritious and rich in taste. The other element that makes this recipe perfect is soy yogurt, which in addition to being a source of protein, makes the vegetable stracchino incredibly creamy and easy to spread. It doesn’t take cruelty to love what we eat, vegetable ingredients give us everything we need!
