Whole grain grilled cheese

Let’s put an Ontario grain twist on a classic lunchbox favourite and make a whole grain grilled cheese sandwich! We’re using a dairy free cheese alternative made from soybean proteins, but choose the type of cheese your family enjoys best! This recipe is also perfect for those with a dairy allergy or sensitivity.

Did you know that many dairy-free cheeses are made from differing vegetable proteins, like soy proteins?

Yield: 1 sandwich

Prep time: 5 minutes
