Vegan Melting Cheeze Straws

Looking for vegan cheese sticks that melt in your mouth – literally? This Vegan Melting Mature Cheeze Sticks recipe from Ilchester and What Luce Eats is truly a game-changer!

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 25 minutes

Makes 9-12


1 roll of vegan puff pastry (chilled)
1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon of smoked paprika
Pinch of salt
Pinch of pepper
100g Ilchester Vegan Melting Mature
Salsa or dip of choice to serve


1. Begin by preheating the oven to 180° and rolling out the puff pastry onto a flat surface.
2. Using a brush, coat the puff pastry in the oil, and then sprinkle over the smoked paprika so it covers as much of the pastry as possible.
3. Season with salt and pepper.
4. Next, finely grate the melting mature cheeze and sprinkle it over the entirety of the pastry sheet.
5. Now, using a sheet of baking paper or clingfilm, place it on top of the pastry and gently press down. This will push the melting mature cheeze into the pastry.
6. Carefully remove the paper and then using a sharp knife cut into 9- 12 strips horizontally.
7. Twist the strips and place them onto a baking tray ensuring there is space in between them as they’ll puff up.
8. Sprinkle with any remaining grated cheeze and place the tray into the oven for 20-25 minutes. Serve with a salsa or dip of choice.
