Vegan Grilled Cheese Extravaganza
4:30 PM
Park County Senior Center
Who doesn’t love grilled cheese? The mouth-watering crispy-creamy deliciousness of a grilled cheese sandwich brings back fond memories of childhood and the ultimate comfort food. Some people might assume that going vegan means no more grilled cheese - to those people, we say: come to this potluck and let us blow your mind!

The monthly Live and Let Livingston Vegan Food Potluck will take place at the Park County Senior Center, 206 South Main Street, on Sunday, December 10 at 4:30pm. Everyone is welcome; attendees don’t have to be vegan - but the food does. The theme is always optional, and the recipe demo will feature Wayfare Cheese, a nationally distributed plant-based spread that is made in Bozeman, Montana!

L&LL will provide bread, vegan butter, and panini presses to this potluck; attendees are invited to bring their favorite plant-based cheese - and build their own sandwich.

Vegan cheese has come a long way in the last few years. Wayfare from Bozeman makes an amazing variety of cheddar spreads that are made from oatmeal. Field Roast’s Chao cheese slices are coconut based, Miyoko’s Creamery cheeses are made from cashews, and Daiya is made from tapioca. All of these delicious plant-based cheeses are available at Town and Country Foods in Livingston.

Avoid the deceptive and misleading Lisanatti brand; Lisanatti’s “Rice Cheeze”, “Almond Cheeze”, and “Soy Cheeze” are not vegan, they ALL contain casein (the protein in mammalian milk that causes cancer cells to grow) and rennet (derived from the lining of baby cow’s intestines.) So read those cheese labels, peeps. Stick to the Daiya, Chao, Wayfare, and Miyoko’s brands. Bonus: they taste the best, too!

Potluck attendees don’t have to be vegan, but the food does. They are asked to bring a 100% plant-based dish free of flesh, eggs, animal-derived dairy, honey, and gelatin. People are also asked to bring their recipe or a list of all ingredients used, (for the benefit of those with food allergies). The theme is always optional, and those who don't want to cook can bring something to drink.

Live and Let Livingston meets on the second Sunday of every month, at 4:30pm. Delicious food, educational resources, and recipes are shared with those who care about their health, the planet, and most of all, the animals. Plates, cups, utensils, napkins, and warming trays are provided, along with hot tea, coffee, and non-dairy cream. Anywhere from 2-4 dozen people attend and there are usually several gluten-free and raw dishes offered, along with the inevitable… cupcakes!
