Vegan Cheese and Marshmallows

What did I do to deserve Kevin taking me to lunch two days in a row? I'll assume it is a sign of his love, and not that he could not get a better date:) Well, we have not been cooking vegan dinners for the last couple days (we also eat cheese and eggs), so here is a picture of my lunch yesterday. It is an avocado and soy cheese sandwich with lettuce, tomatoes, sprouts and dill spread from Tierra Cafe, a little vegetarian place within walking distance from our offices. The key to a good sandwich is the bread, and this is yummy bread. I am not a huge advocate of soy cheese, but this is good. Maybe the difference is that it is not melted. Anyone out there have a favorite soy cheese? I think VeganDoc likes FollowYourHeart. We have FollowYourHeart market and restaurant out here. I like the restaurant, but I think the market is overpriced (though they used to be the only place to get vegan marshmallows here). By the way, does anyone know where to get good vegan marshmallows? We have been ordering them from PETA, but they aren't the best.

I think the brand of cheese I like is also Follow your heart, or gourmet or something like that...sorry I'll have to read the label later :P But the mozzarella melts really well.

I've never been able to find marshmallows :(

cheese is my big issue too. so many of them have caesin in them! It is frustrating enough, but when you've got an allergy to contend with, it is that much harder.

The only one's I've been able to find are the Vegan Sweets. If that's what you're talking about, Mary Ruth, I agree they aren't the best. There is a recipe in "La Dolce Vegan!" but I have yet to try it.
