Cream Cheese Swirl

  2. To serve the soup, drizzle some of the thinned Smoked Cream Cheese into each bowl, and then garnish with a little parsley and chopped tomato.

Grilled Cheese

  1. Spread a layer of Spero Sunflower Cream Cheese in between 2 slices of bread. Add slices of your favorite vegan meltable cheese as well.

  2. Heat the vegan butter in a skillet until melted over medium heat.

  3. Place the sandwich into the pan with the butter and cook until cheese is melted and bread is golden brown on both sides. Serve immediately with the tomato soup.
