Mini Cheese Tomato Flatbreads and a Daiya Giveaway!
Happy Monday friends! I would definitely go so far as to say this is a Marvelous Monday! I have something delicious to share with you all!

MiMM MIMM #64 with Girls Night and More!

I feel like time is flying by these days. I sadly don't post here as much as I would like to. Instagram seems to be my go to for posting pictures of things I'm currently making. This little baking adventure is definitely worth sharing here though too! Besides, I have some freebies to give away to 3 of you too!


When I first had to go dairy free, there were really no cheese alternatives that were worth eating...until Daiya came around.  I've actually grown accustomed to not having cheese alternatives in my life. There are some instances though, when cheese makes things better. When those instances come up, Daiya is definitely my go to cheesy alternative. 


Yesterday was a soup day for us (I will share that one later this week). You all know by now that I LOVE making my protein flatbread. Well, I had some Daiya and fresh tomatoes from my garden, so I thought it would be a nice change to bake my usual flatbread in a different way...


I'm so glad I did this! The addition of Daiya along with the fresh tomato, some kosher salt and fresh ground pepper made these mini flatbreads such a great accompaniment to a big bowl of lentil spinach stew.


Crispy on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside with a creamy topping all melty and gooey...YUM!


Mini Cheese Tomato Flatbreads
(makes 4)

2/3 cup chickpea flour (I used Bob's Red Mill)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 TBSP apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup egg whites
2/3 cup soda water
sliced tomatoes
1/4 cup Daiya cheese
kosher salt and fresh ground pepper

Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the wet ingredients and mix well. Pour batter evenly into greased muffin tins (I used those tortilla taco shell pans). Bake at 450 degrees for 5 minutes, then top with tomatoes and Daiya. Sprinkle with kosher salt and fresh ground pepper, bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned. 


Now, for those of you interested in giving Daiya a try, leave me a comment here telling me your favorite cheesy dish. I definitely want to share these coupons with you so you can enjoy your favorite dairy free cheese dishes again too! I will pick a winner Monday, September 2nd. 

I'm sharing this on Slightly Indulgent Tuesday and Allergy Free Wednesday this week too!

    I'm vegan and Daiya is my go-to when I need a cheesy fix! I like the shreds from time to time, but actually prefer the cheddar slices for my veggie burgers. They're expensive (ugh) but perfect when I have a craving. So nice of you to share!

    Just pinned this. I love Daiya and am so glad to have it as an option. I love that it really does melt like cheese and tastes like it for the most part. I've not tried the slices yet. Love using block style for grilled cheese sandwiches.

    Believe it or not I love cheese with Daiya Jack or Havarti cheese & crackers and it's nice to be able to eat a grilled cheese again. Love Daiya!!!

    Oh man, I dunno if I can narrow it down to just one favorite! Top pics would be lasagna, baked ziti, and mac n' cheese. What can I say, I like carbs with my cheese! ;)

    it is SO GOOD to see a post here, Sarena! I cannot say I've "missed you" since I have the privilege of being your friend, but I have missed your recipes and posts here.

    I saw these yesterday and Mmm, do they look good - I love anything tomato + cheese.

    you know I love my Daiya, havarti is my favorite, and if I had to choose a favorite recipe? probably my cheesy hasselback tomatoes or the plant based steak with havarti sauce... or... or...

    XXO

    I eat cheese, but I legit love Daiya. And I love your bread. Silly gfarmer's market was out of chickpea flour this weekend. I'm missing my socca!!! #fail

    My favorite cheesy dish is pizza!! I like using Daiya for this purpose, as it's the closest to the real thing!!

    My daughter and I are both lactose intolerant, and would love to win these. We miss taco's, lasagna, pizza, chicken parmigiana... I could keep going, but I won't. You get the picture. :0)

    oh daiya, ooye gooey goodness on this GF bread. You are one hell of a cook! I need you to make an ebook.

    I've been intrigued by vegan cheese for a long time. It's about time I've given it a try - especially with creamy baked ziti!

     
  • At August 26, 2013 at 9:55 PM, Blogger antrapig said…

    This is great! I have been looking for alternatives and have not found anything good so far. I would love to try this in some lasagna! I have given it up completely and miss it!

     
  • At August 27, 2013 at 2:37 AM, Blogger V said…

    I love Daiya; it's the only "cheese" I can have! I have gotten used to going without cheese, but I have a soft spot for a veggie cheese crisp. :)

    Ooohhh -- I love the sound of this, pinning for sure!! And I'm a huge fan of Daiya, my favorite use is for my vegan cheeze fondue. :)

    I would love to use this to make some mac and cheese!

    I love using Daiya to make gluten free, vegan mac n cheese. It isn't healthy, but it is delicious!!!

    Those little chickpea breads look amazing Sarena! I haven't been into cheese or cheese alternative in the past, but lately, the cravings are hitting!

    I'm a vegan and haven't had a cheese-yearning for years and years...however, my husband won't give up his beloved cheese. Daiya is the only non-dairy alternative he'll eat. I'd love to make him a grilled cheese...or his favorite -- quesadillas.

    I am newly Gluten Free/Dairy Free (and mostly Sugar free) due to the fact that my 5 yr. old daughter and I have both been recently diagnosed with Lyme Disease and our immune and digestive systems are extremely challenged as a result. Trying to cook for a family of 5 in this new way is a HUGE challenge for me. I prefer gourmet food, but the kids are stuck in the traditions of American meal convenience i.e.. mac 'n cheese, pizza, and cheeseburgers, because this was how they ate often while I was hospitalized. I would love a great mac 'n cheese recipe for the kids, but also something like chicken parmesan, or Canneloni for my husband who is a huge Italian cuisine fan. Thank you so much for your fun and informative blog :)

    This recipe looks gosh darn fantastic Sarena. :) Can't wait until we can sit and eat together. I forgot about the Daiya cheese. I may have to go look for it.

    I have never even heard of Daiya, that's awesome! I'd have to go with pizza or mac and cheese!

    any Italian dish is what I crave, but also quesadillas. I would love to try Daiya!

    My zucchini crust pizza is definitely my favorite cheesey dish! Daiya is, by far, the best cheese alternative out there! I stock up and freeze it when it's in sale!

    i'm not completely vegan, but i LOVE vegan cheeses. I have no idea why, but i usually don't get them because they are more expensive. #poorgirlproblems. i would love to be able to have some in the house!

    I tried Daiya for the first time a few months back - and was convinced I'd hate it. I actually loved it under the broiler on an english muffin, dipped in marinara. Such good comfort food!

     
  • At September 2, 2013 at 2:07 AM, Blogger Carrie said…

    I'm newbie to being dairy-free and came across your blog while in search of new recipes and products. Haven't tried Daiya yet, but will look for it at the store. The dish I'm missing most right now is deep-dish cheese pizza! I can hear it calling my name! :D

    10 years ago, when I developed a dairy allergy, the alternatives were downright gross! Daiya has completely changed my life!! Probably the best thing I've ever made with it is a kickin' dairy free lasagna (soooo good!) but anything I use it in is delicious! Had a slice of cheddar-style in a fried egg sandwich yesterday and I didn't want it to end!!

    I developed a dairy allergy 10 years ago and the cheese alternatives then were GROSS!! Daiya has been such a great surprise!! The best thing I make with it is an amazing dairy-free lasagna with the mozzarella shreds (soooo good!!). It's an indulgence, so I stock up when I see it go on sale. I love cheddar slices on fried egg sandwiches, burgers - really any of the slices make a great sandwich and I eat slices of the block cheese as a snack, as I did when I could eat real cheese. So great!!

    We LOVE Daiya cheese! I use it often for my kiddos. This is such a great recipe, Sarena!!

    My brother who is a newly diagnosed celiac, dairy-intolerant (including eggs) and then some... WOULD LOVE THIS STUFF!!!!!! He misses pizza so much!

    *I have been free of all of these things for a LONG LONG time, I don't even remember what cheese is!LOL!
