Vegan halloumi for the UK

If I had a pound for every time someone told me they would be vegan except they love halloumi too much, I’d be writing this blog post on a gold plated keyboard.

Well, get ready to see a whole bunch of non-vegans make the switch because Violife is about to launch a vegan halloumi into the UK market.

I was able to snap up a pack of this new cheese from the Violife stand at the recent Just V Show in London where I was told it will be available via Sainsbury’s stores in mid-August.

We have tried frying the cheese in a pan and it was extremely tasty. I have never tasted halloumi made from animal milk in my life so I am unable to tell you how this compares. That said, I would definitely buy this vegan version and can’t wait to try it in a melted cheese sandwich.

How excited are you about vegan halloumi?

  1. Oh my, you just changed my life FGV!

  2. It’s out now! Looks like indie shops have got a head start over the supernarkets for once 🙂

  3. Does it squeak? An authentic taste is achievable with tofu, but I’ve never tried any that squeaks like real halloumi when you eat it, so the texture is key.
