Cheese croquettes! I have eaten a lot of these in the old days, but since going vegan have only had a couple of occassions where I could eat vegan cheese croquettes. Vegan cheese croquettes are not so easily found in shops (at least not around here). I had bought some at vegan shop SHAVT (now only webshop) and also eaten these at a bistro in Louvain, but the SHAVT webshop doesn’t sell these cheese croquettes any more. DIY it is! And yes, I call these cheese croquettes! Even if there are no animal ingredients involved. I simply consider ‘cheese’ to be a processed product, that just as well can be made from cashews, coconut or other plantbased materials! Up till now, we have always used cheese from the brand Wilmersburger to make these, but any other firm cheese, with a neutral taste, will probably do. Wilmersburger can be bought in most organic shops around here.
We recently ate vegan cheese croquettes from YASAI!. This is is a homebrand of vegan shop V|edge in Ghent (our blog with a look inside shop V|edge will follow shortly). V|edge also delivers your online shopping to a delivery point in Bruges, every couple of weeks. Check their website for details. Just fry these cheese croquettes for 5 to 6 minutes at 175° in a frying pot, and they are ready to serve. These were yummie! Will definitely be buying these cheese croquettes again! bought at V|edge, January 2015 10 frozen croquettes (500g), 13,99€
