Garlicky Cheesy Pull-Apart Bread with Kale and Follow Your Heart Cheeses

cheesy bread (16)

Today is National Cheese Lovers Day. It’s funny, prima ero vegano, I was not a big cheese lover. I loved two cheeses – mozzarella e parmigiano grattugiato. Questo è tutto. Così, quando sono diventato vegano, giving up cheeses wasn’t such a big deal for me except when I made Italian food.

Più, quando sono diventato vegano (7 years ago next month), there weren’t a lot of choices when it came to vegan cheese. Oggi, there are tons of choices and they are all getting better and better everyday! They taste like cheese, they cook like cheese, they slice, grate and most importantly, they melt! Vegan cheeses are definitely something to celebrate.

Let’s celebrate National Cheese Lovers Day with an incredible recipe made with some incredible vegan cheeses from Segui Il Tuo Cuore.

Their original Vegan Gourmet® soy-based vegan cheeses that actually melt include blocks of Mozzarella, Cheddar, Nacho and Monterey Jack. They were some of the first vegan cheeses I tried.

If you’ve never had pull-apart bread, basically it’s a loaf of bread that you cut and stuff yummy food into. Then the cheese melts and you pull apart the bread with your fingers and eat it.

It’s supposed to be a party food but since your hands have to be all over it, I would reserve it for a party with your nearest, dearest friends.

Per questa ricetta, I used a combination of Follow Your Heart’s Garden Herb and Mozzarella Cheeses.

It’s really easy – just take a loaf of bread, cut into it almost to the bottom in one direction and then cut into it in the other direction.

Saute your ingredients – I sauteed onions, peppers and kale with lots of garlic – and then stuff it into the wedges of bread.

Stuff cheese in next, top it with garlic butter and bake it until the bread is brown and the cheese is ooey-gooey melty.

SF if your burro vegan is soy-free

1 Tbs. olio d'oliva

1 cipolla, chopped

3 spicchi d'aglio, tritato

1 peperone rosso, chopped

1 bunch kale, gambo e tritate

½ cucchiaino. pepe nero

Sale kosher qb

Un pizzico di noce moscata.

1 loaf bread

1 ½ – 2 coppe Follow Your Heart Vegan Cheese, diced or shredded

2 Tbs. burro vegan mixed with 1/2 cucchiaino. aglio in polvere

Salsa Marinara, per immersione

Scaldate l'olio in una padella a fuoco medio-alto. Cook the onions until softened, circa 4 minuti. Add the garlic and toss. Add the bell pepper and cook until softened, circa 4 minuti. Aggiungere il cavolo, little by little as it wilts. Saute until wilted and bright green. Condire con sale, pepe e noce moscata. Transfer to a bowl and mix in about 1/2 cup of vegan cheese shreds.

Preriscaldare il forno a 350 gradi. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. Lay the loaf of bread on the baking sheet. With a bread knife, cut the bread in rows lengthwise. Don’t cut all the way down to the bottom. Leave about ½-inch towards the bottom. Hold the cut slices together and cut the bread width-wise to make a checkerboard.

Stuff the openings of the bread with the veggie/cheese combo. Use your fingers to gently pry apart the wedges of bread and push the food down towards the bottom. Prossimo, stuff the bread with more cheese shreds. Make sure you get filling in every single wedge.

Melt the vegan butter and mix in the garlic powder. Brush this over the loaf of bread. Cover the loaf with foil and wrap it tightly. Cuocere in forno per 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

Raise the oven temp to 400 gradi. Uncover the bread and bake another 10-15 minutes until the cheese is melted and the bread is browned and crisp. Serve immediately with dipping sauce and lots of napkins.
