Winter Warmer: Grilled Cheese

I can’t wait until winter, but I don’t want to cook soup or stew right now. My anxiety is sky high right now and I’m in need of some comfort food. A comfort food I discovered after going vegan was a grilled cheese sandwich. It’s warming and winter and comforting in summer.

In winter I might serve this with soup, but I didn’t feel like making soup, or eating it. I made some Brussels sprouts in my air fryer. I only had frozen ones on hand and cooked those.


Grilled Cheese


  • Two Slices Your Favorite Bread
  • Two Slices Follow Your Heart Cheese
  • Vegan Butter for greasing pan


  1. Grease pan with butter
  2. Place one slice of bread down in butter. Place 2 cheese slices on bread. Top with other slice of bread
  3. Cook on low or medium heat until bread is toasty and cheese is melty. You’ll have to flip the bread so both sides get toasty.

Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts


  • 8oz Frozen Brussels Sprouts (I like the little ones)

  • Red Pepper Flakes to Taste
  • Cooking Spray


  1. Place all veggies and seasoning in air fryer basket.
  2. Spray with cooking spray
  3. Cook at 400 (f) for about 20 minutes, until Brussels sprouts are soft and browned.
