Tofutti Minis Roasted Red Pepper & Garlic Dairy & Soy Free




I do find Dairy free 'cheese' will divide opinion, you either love it or hate it and it does depend on the brand. One of my personal favourites is Tofutti. For me this is the dairy free substitute for Philadelphia. I like that it is available in different flavours and goes perfect on a bagel. I'm always jealous of the US because the Tofutti's range is a lot larger and goes beyond cheese.

Anyway, the other weekend I was in Holland & Barrett, stocking up on my free from treats and I spotted Tofutti Minis. The box (pictured above) contains 6 x 28g portions (£2.99). 

   
At first I thought what possible use could I have for these but they actually have come in handy. I have to take a packed lunch to work and these are ideal. There is enough in the tub for a good coating on a bagel or two rice crackers. I like the flavour although I wouldn't mind it being a bit more garlicky.

What do you think? Do you think these are a practical solution or a waste of time?

  1. I haven't heard of the brand before but I will certainly be looking out for the in Holland and Barrett as cheese is one of the things I always crave and can't have. I have tried a soy cream cheese but just wasn't sure x

    1. We've had the brand over here for years but the range is a lot bigger in the USA. One thing I'd say it don't expect an exact dupe for the real stuff, you have to remember this is a substitution so will be a little different :-)

  2. I'm also allergic to dairy and I'm always looking for a substitute to cheese. I'll have to take a look at those. We avoid Philadelphia cheese in our house as it's quite processed and I buy ricotta instead. Of course, I can't eat it but my husband likes it.

    1. Tofutti also comes in larger tubs, in a variety of flavour options and a plain version. You'll have to let me know what you think if you try one :-)

    2. I've tried it and it's lovely. It's very similar to ricotta cheese which I'm pleased about. I like it because it hasn't got soya which is a plus for me. I'm not allergic to soya but I've got an under active thyroid gland (oh, the joys of aging!) and I try no to eat too much soya.

  4. Thanks for sharing this Sarah. Cheese is the only dairy product I haven't been able to give up and this is really useful as I am determined to kick the cheesy habit x
