After much gadding about and eating out on Sunday, we sought something lighter at home for Monday's dinner. Enter the vegan cheesy sandwich spread, which I believe is a Johanna GGG original! It takes just a minute or two to mash together and is made from the kind of ingredients commonly spotted in vegan cheese alternatives - tofu, nooch, mustard and miso with a bit of mayo to smooth it out. The texture reminded me of cottage cheese, hence the remixed name. (Besides, we didn't spread it on sandwiches, just dug in with chopped vege dippers.)
Did somebody say 'remix'? Why yes, this is another remixed recipe we'll be sending to 'that recipe seems very familiar...'. Johanna's a long-time and prolific VegMel-syndicated blogger and we tip our hats to her.
(a recipe by Johanna GGG)
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
(did you know that the Praise 97% fat free stuff is vegan?!)
1 1/2 teaspoons shiro miso
1 teaspoon seeded mustard
In a small bowl, mash the tofu with a fork. Add all the remaining ingredients and mix well to combine.
