They're here, and they're delicious! Welcome to Field Roast's newest family member: a vegan coconut cheese alternative seasoned with a traditionally fermented soybean curd called Chao by the Vietnamese. Field Roast blends unique Asian and European heritages to create this fantastic vegan option by partnering with a Greek cheese maker and a family in Taiwan who makes the Chao to merge their skills into one fantastic cheese. Throw a slice anywhere that it sounds good, crumble on top of salads, or just enjoy a piece straight from the package, any way you eat it, you'll be happy you've tried Chao Cheese!
Chao Cheese is gluten-free, and is available in 7 oz. (200g) packages that contain 10 slices each. $8.09 per package.
Ingredients: Filtered water, coconut oil, modified corn and potato starch, potato starch, fermented tofu (soybeans, water, salt, sesame oil, calcium sulfate), sea salt, natural flavor, olive extract (antioxidant used as a preservative) and beta carotene
This is my go to cheese for sandwiches, pasta, anything. The Chao original is my favorite after years of searching. I would describe it as a nice balance between white cheddar and swiss - moderately neutral, super melty, goes with absolutely everything.
