Vegan Spinach Pesto Swiss Grilled Cheeze

Recipe by Peas and Crayons

Pair this gorgeous green grilled cheese with a veggie-flecked side salad or a steaming hot cup of soup!


  • 2 slices Daiya Swiss Style Slices
  • 1 handfull fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1-2 tbsp vegan buttery spread of choice, as needed
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 slices of your favorite bread
  • 2 tbsp vegan pesto sauce, of choice


Sauté your spinach on medium-high heat with a little buttery spread or oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste and set aside.

Spread pesto on each slice of bread.

Top one slice with Daiya Swiss Style Slices and sautéed spinach, then top with the other slice, pesto side down.

For an extra golden crust, spread the outside of each slice of bread with vegan buttery spread or coconut oil.

Next heat a pan to medium heat with some extra buttery spread or coconut oil. Once hot, add your sandwich.

Use a spatula to press down on the grilled cheese, and feel free to pop a clear pot lid on top to help melt the slices. Before flipping, add a little more spread/oil if your pan is dry. Pop your lid back on if you’re using one and grill each side until golden brown with a melty center.

MELTY GRILLED CHEESE TRICK: For the meltiest sandwich ever, pop it in the microwave for 15 seconds or so after grilling for the most epic vegan cheese pull of all time!
