This rich, sweet, and savory Vegan Caramelized Onion and Mushroom Grilled Cheese feels really indulgent. You may want to pair this with a glass of red wine.
Normally I like to use vegan cheddar or vegan cream cheese for a grilled cheese sandwich. Sometimes I'll use vegan Mozzarella or vegan jalapeño Havarti.
I've found that using the same ingredients several times in different recipes throughout the week is an extremely efficient way to work. It's great for using up ingredients where you want to change it up each time you make a meal.
This vegan grilled cheese is an indulgent meal.
