Miyoko’s Cheesy Garlic Vegan Butter is absolutely fantastic. We are not one bit surprised (though we are disappointed it’s no longer in the online store — we hope it’ll return soon!).

This lovely butter comes in a tub, and it is flaked with herbs and has a very buttery consistency — impossible to tell it’s not “real” butter.

IMG_8107We spread it onto slices of crusty French bread, which we then popped into the oven to make garlic bread.

IMG_8112Our bread emerged from the oven with a perfectly melted, buttery, cheesy, garlicky topping — and it was delectable. (We also tried adding the butter to warmed bread, but it is much better when applied liberally to bread, then warmed.)

You can spread it on as thick or as thin as you’d like, but thin works well because this butter is so incredibly flavorful.  The only problem with this lovely new product is that it sells out so fast — get it while you can!
