Food For Lovers Vegan Queso

In the days leading up to Super Bowl Week, it was impossible not to notice the giant end-cap display at my local supermarket featuring dairy-laden tortilla chips and queso dips. Not long after that, I reviewed Nacho Mom's Fire Roasted Vegan Queso. (And some months earlier, I also reviewed their Ultimate Vegan Queso.) I love the stuff! It's cheesy, spicy, and fat-free. What's not to like? Then I learned about another company making vegan queso, and I thought, really? But then why not? There can never be too many vegan companies out there giving people healthier, delicious, cruelty-free options. So I decided to try Food For Lovers Vegan Queso. Like its competitor, it's cheesy flavor comes from nutritional yeast. It's smooth, creamy, and has a nice spicy kick.


It made wonderful nachos,


and really jazzed up my Chez Gourmet Oregon Harvest Veggi Burger (shown here with Trader Joe's Smoky Peach Salsa on a Dave's Killer Bread Blues Bun.


If these photos make your mouth water, grab yourself a jar of vegan queso as soon as you can. I still can't find them locally and must order them online at Pangea, VeganEssentials, and Cosmo's Vegan Shoppe. But then, you might get lucky and find a store near you that carries at least one brand. You'll save yourself a small bundle in shipping. Either way, don't miss out on enjoying such a delicious guilt-free indulgence. Happy eating!

One can never have too much vegan queso. And fat free, too? That like heaven!

Helen said...

I bought Nacho Moms after reading your earlier posts, and it is so delicious! I'm looking forward to trying Food For Lovers, too. Thanks so much for sharing! I agree with Randy. The burger looks amazing.

I love all of your cheese posts! Who knew there were so many vegan cheeses to choose from? Add this one to the list I can't wait to try. Thank you.

Angel said...

YUM! More proof that you don't give up anything (except cruelty and ill health), when you go vegan

Olivia said...

Thanks for the links to where to buy this! I don't have a Whole Foods near me, and I've never seen this at any other store. I'm looking forward to trying it! I love Mexican food, and it's been awhile since I've had a quesadilla.

Well said, Angel! I couldn't agree with you more!

I'm new to veganism, and this sounds really wonderful. Your blog is really helpful and informative. So many great recipes and photos. I feel like it's going to be a lot easier and tastier than I thought. Thank you.

Hi Charles! Thank you for stopping by and visiting my blog! I wish I was traveling to the U.K. sometime soon. I'd surely be happy to bring you some queso. I know it's costly, but you can order vegan queso online at Pangea, Vegan Essentials and Cosmo's Vegan Shoppe, as they do ship to the U.K. It might be worthwhile if you also want to try other vegan items you cannot find there.
Cheers!

P.S. I haven't tried Cheezly yet, but it's on my must-try list!

This sounds like something that even my vegan-phobic husband would like. Thanks to my daughter, we watched the film Earthling and I'm keeping a vegan home now. The challenge has been finding foods my husband will enjoy. I can't wait to explore the rest of your blog.

That really looks creamy and cheesy. I feel a quesadilla coming on. I'll be ordering some vegan queso pronto.

VeganMarr said...

Looks yummy! Yet another proof that everything can be made vegan-style! :-)

Sarah said...

Dang, that burger looks good! I think it's time to get some vegan queso and Trader Joe's smokey peach salsa!

Debra said...

My kids are suckers for nachos - I definitely need to try the vegan queso ASAP!
Thanks!!! :-)
