Gone are the days of  processed, tasteless, or rubbery dairy-free cheeses! The options below are made with organic ingredients with care and commitment to real food. You can serve these on bagels or on a cheese board to rave reviews. Trust me.


YOSO CASHEW-BASED CREAM CHEESE This creamy, melty, buttery vegan cream cheese is a total game changer – and it’s available in plain or garlic & onion flavours. Yoso developed this cream cheese with award-winning Chef Doug McNish’s original recipe, so it’s no surprise that it’s not only delicious, but versatile in many recipes, too.

‎MIYOKO’S Between flavours like VeganMozz (mozzarella), Sharp Farmhouse, and Double Cream Garlic Herb, you’ll have trouble deciding where to start! Put one of their beautiful aged nut-based cheese on your next cheese/vegcuterie board to rave reviews.

CULCHERD These tree nut cheeses are all handcrafted in Toronto with raw, plant-based ingredients. We love that their packaging is natural, compostable, and eco-friendly and that they use only organic ingredients.

NUTS FOR CHEESE Nuts for Cheese takes cashews and turns them into more than your typical vegan cheddar – just try their Un-Brie-Lievable or their Super “Blue” (made with spirulina). They’re a local, artisanal company too.

DOUG MCNISH As an award-winning vegan chef, Doug McNish is always creating in kitchen. From his soon-to-be-famous cashew ricotta to his lemon ash herbed cheese ball, it’s worth stopping by his Public Kitchen in Toronto to see what you can enjoy at dinner or brunch, or to grab and go from his fully stocked fridge.
