Plant-Based Apple “Cheese” Flatbread

If you’re looking for a quick and simple appetizer or snack, this delicious Plant-Based Apple “Cheese” Flatbread recipe will hit the spot! It’s great for entertaining guests or when you want something a little bit different as a mid-day snack. The combination of apples, plant-based cheese, and arugula gives it a nice balance of cheesy, sweet, and peppery flavors. Plus, did I already mention it’s quick?!

For this dish, I used one small green apple and a small red apple because I like the combination of tart and sweet flavors you get from using both. I like to use organic apples. For the “cheese” I used plant-based potato queso from Loca. You can opt for their mild or spicy option, whichever you prefer.

This recipe is great for those who are not only gluten-free but dairy-free or vegan.
