Pepperjack Panini

My step-by-step photos show you how to craft the perfect Pepperjack Panini – featuring dairy-free Daiya Cheese. You might be surprised at how delicious this vegan panini looks – and take it from me – it tastes amazing. Sinful cheesy pepperjack flavor all the way. I’ve accented this panini with fresh basil, roasted bell peppers, fresh vine-ripened tomatoes, a hefty slather of vegan buttery spread on fluffy, rustic white bread – and of course plenty of melted cheese oozing through each delicious bite. If you’ve never tried making a panini with Daiya cheese – this slideshow will give you a feel for it!..

It used to be that if you wanted a dairy free cheese you had to sacrifice one crucial “cheese characteristic” – the melt factor! But not anymore. And with Daiya’s brand new pepperjack flavor you can add dairy free meltiness to paninis, pizza, pasta, enchiladas and more! This was my first time trying the new flavor and I loved it! Give this panini a try (recipe below step-by-step photos)..

    This was the best panini I have ever had. I’ve been allergic to dairy and soy my whole life and I ran straight to the store after seeing this recipe. Delicious, thank you so much!

    I am gluten & dairy intolerant. I had been eating goat cheese but I can’t tolerate it either. I recently discoverd Daiya cheese and chose the Pepperjack flavor. I am in love! It was wonderful. I have missed cheese a lot & this makes up for it. My husband was not as impressed but then again, he can eat the real thing. :) I can’t wait to try your tomato soup with grilled cheese recipe! Thanks for the great blog!! :)
