Treeline Soft Cheeses

Crystal Lake Health Food store has started selling Treeline Treenut Cheese. I tried the scallion flavor first.  I spread it over gluten-free crackers. It was good; it would have been even better with a glass of red wine. A lot of vegan cheeses are poor substitutes for the real thing, but nut based cheeses seem to be the exception.

I used the herb-garlic flavor to make macaroni & cheese

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 12 oz. Macaroni or other Short Pasta
  • 6 oz. Treeline Cream Cheese
  • 3/4 c. Almond, Coconut, or Soy Milk
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. Pepper

Cook pasta according to package.

Heat olive oil. Add non-dairy milk and stir. Add Treeline Cream Cheese and stir until combined.

Season with salt and pepper and combine with pasta.

It’s not as good as VegNews’ famous mac & cheese, but it’s tasty and it’s quick and easy. We ate it with a Gardein grilled chick’n salad.
