Vegan Mozzarella with Tomatoes and Crispy Basil

Vegan Mozzarella with Tomatoes and Crispy Basil on a sunday and i am here for this delicious dish! it’s the easiest recipe to create as you need such few ingredients. no dairy, no problem, you won’t miss a thing with Vegan Mozzarella with Tomatoes and Crispy Basil.

there are ton’s of delicious ways to eat tomatoes and cheese, but i have to say, this is my favorite.

all you just need a block of vegan mozzarella and the brand that i used is miyoko’s! it’s perfectly creamy and melts well!

it doesn’t melt exactly as well as it’s dairy counterpart but it’s cruelty-free and good for you, so I am all about that.

a mixture of cherry tomatoes and kumato tomatoes are such a treat. you can use cherry or grape and leave the kumato tomatoes behind if you can’t find them!

cherry tomatoes can be found at just about every grocery store. ok, here is my replacement suggestion if you can’t find miyoko’s mozzarella or any solid cheese block.

you can take a tub of vegan cream cheese like kite hill brand, place it in the center and let it melt a little bit.

the dish will be a bit more messy but it will still taste fantastic, i promise you that.

oh and let’s not forget about the crispy basil, which takes this recipe to another level. truly shocked that i have not put crispy basil on everything and anything, it’s divine.

it’s really to easy to make crispy with extra virgin olive oil and a little bit of sea salt.

let’s talk about how you should eat Vegan Mozzarella with Tomatoes and Crispy Basil! toast your favorite bread with some vegan butter and garlic and dig in.

there is seriously nothing better than crispy garlic bread, tomatoes, mozzarella and basil. it’s the dream team times a million.

you can make this for a group of people and they will 1000% be asking for the recipe.
