Wicked Good Grilled Cheese

Vegan Grilled Cheese Sandwich

An adult vegan grilled cheese with a kick! The tomato habanero jam adds the perfect balance of sweet and spice to this awesome sandwich. 

Made mini versions of these for an event years back and served them with shooters of fresh tomato Gazpacho – delicious! Melted smoky vegan gouda is the star here, paired perfectly with the spicy and sweet notes of the jam. Use this recipe as a base to load your favourite toppings onto, such as olives, artichokes, spinach etc. Get creative with this one!
