Posts Tagged ‘Faux Cheese’

The Mouse, caught between a rock and a hard place. Likes cheese, but dairy not a friend to The Mouse. Had a hankering for cheese this week. Out of desperation.

Faux Cheese

Right next to the faux cheese.

Vegetarian Deli Slices

I know, vegetarian and deli kinda don’t go together, at least in The Mouse’s mind. But … open minded is a good thing.

The Mouse made a sandwich.


Tomato slices were okay, umami-ish. “Cheese” was crumbly (didn’t toast the sandwich). More meh.

Next night, tried to melt the “cheese”.

Open-Faced “Cheese” Toast

“Cheese” kinda melted. Got softer, not as crumbly, but not gooey. Still meh.

The Mouse would probably buy the smoked tomato slices again though.

Would The Mouse risk eating real cheese? Even with lactate pills, there are consequences (not as severe, but still consequences), decision has to be well thought through, sorry, TMI. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

All of the components this week, in one sandwich.

The Mouse’s Dindin

The sandwich: whole wheat bread, romaine lettuce, ham slices, mushroom deli slice, SPAM, whole grain mustard, mayo. Banana and orange for balance. 🙂

The first time The Mouse tried the mushroom deli slice, he didn’t get the faux cheese connection. This time, there was a definite fermented funk. Cheese-ish, stink tofu-y, even natto-y aroma and taste. Went well with the other players. Hee hee.

The Cat tasted the mushroom thingy in her own way.

The Cat’s Bowl

Rice porridge, seaweed, soybeans, SPAM slice, mushroom deli slice. The Cat liked.

Enjoy. Eat well.
