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
- 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.
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.
