Grilled Basil Cheeze Sandwich

I’ve been grain-free for three and a half weeks and boy did this sandwich taste heavenly! Grilled cheese with a twist. I made a creamy herb and garlic cheese spread that makes a great alternative to cream cheese or other vegan cheese substitutes. Load on the veggies and pair with sweet potato fries for a simple and delicious lunch/dinner! I’m also in the midst of making exciting changes to my blog! A new name and logo, so please be patient with me if you notice anything wacky 😉
