Happy National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day! Many of the hearty, gooey, grilled cheese sandwiches devoured today will be made with dairy. However, increasingly, conversation has opened up surrounding the health risks posed to the 15% of the world who happen to be able to digest lactose, as well as whether taste is superior to the environmental and ethical impact of farming animals.

If you’re curious about veganism, love a good grilled cheese sandwich but not the dairy industry, looking to reduce your grocery bill, or are simply interested in exploring new cuisines – give these gooey vegan recipes a go!
