This is great news for fellow low FODMAP’ers as lactose, soya and gluten can all be triggers for our gut.

I got to try 5 different types of Violife vegan cheese and detail my thoughts below:
Le Rond Camembert Flavour
I had never seen this Camembert flavour before so was really looking forward to trying it. The recipe I have created below uses this cheese, and I can confirm it’s a real hit! Such a great flavour.
Smoky Cheddar Flavour Slices
These slices have such a great flavour, they really remind of me of dairy smoked cheese! Even the rind/skin around the outside gives it an authentic feel.
Epic Mature Cheddar Flavour – Grated
This grated mature cheese has a great flavour, especially sprinkled on top of a tomato sauce with pasta or melted onto nachos. I love the ease that the pre grated cheese provides and means I can get my dinner that bit quicker.
I use this block of cheese for everything, sandwiches, snacking, melted on vegetables, on toast – the possibilities are endless.
Original Flavour Slices
These original flavour slices are perfect in burgers – for me they are best on a Beyond Meat burger, with lettuce and ketchup!
Baked Camembert with Grilled Peaches
1 Le Rond Camembert Round
2 large peaches halved, pitted
1 tablespoons garlic infused oil
1.5 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoons fresh mint finely chopped
Preheat the oven to 200 C. Remove all packaging from the camembert and use a small baking dish.
Place the cheese along with the peaches (cut in half) on a baking tray.
In a small bowl combine the balsamic vinegar, and garlic oil.
Sprinkle the mint over the peaches, drizzle with the vinegar mixture and bake for 5 minutes.
Enjoy with crackers or bread.
