How to Cook Daiya’s Plant-based Grilling Cheeze

Posted on June 7, 2022

How to Prepare Daiya Grilling Cheeze

Every day is fry-day with 

PLANT-BASED GRILLING CHEEZE 

Pan-Frying Instructions: 

  1. Pre-heat non-stick pan on medium-high heat for 3-5 minutes or until hot 
  2. Add 1 tsp. of EVOO or oil of choice (incl. cooking spray) to the non-stick pan and let heat up for 1-2 minutes – the oil should be hot before placing grilling cheeze on! 
  3. While the non-stick pan and oil are heating, cut the grilling cheeze block into your preferred shape – we recommend 1″ cubes or 0.5″ thick slices 
  4. Generously brush or toss each side of your grilling cheeze portions with EVOO or preferred oil of choice, about 1 tsp. or until fully coated 
  5. Place grilling cheeze portions onto hot non-stick pan, turn down to medium heat and let sit for approx. 5 min – do not flip or move! – to allow for the grilling cheeze to develop a crispy, golden-brown crust.  
  6. After approx. 5 min, flip cheeze portions and allow another 5 min for crust to form on other side.  
  7. Once the cheeze is fried to your liking and the golden-brown crust looks irresistible, you are ready to serve and savor your cheeze! 

We hope you enjoy this one-of-a-kind cheeze experience. Don’t forget to tag us @daiyafoods to show off your crave-worthy culinary creations! 

Note: For best results, we recommend using a non-stick frying pan. Cook times may vary depending on the size of the grilling cheeze portion, stovetop make/model, and desired level of crispiness and browning.
