I need some ideas
Posted Thursday, October 4, 2012 at 2:14 PM

i am looking for some new ideas for a change -
For those of you who eat bread (sandwiches) or toast, what spreads do you use?

I make my own hummus but sometimes I feel like a change.

I don't like jams/jellies - too much sugar.
Im not a fan of nut butters. There is usually too much oil (although there is a sunflower one that I like but I dont let myself eat too much because of the oil content).
I dont want to use margarine if I can help it because it is so processed.
I dont want to use an organic natural butter becasue its not vegan.

But dry toast is no fun. What's left?

I found an apple butter at Whole Foods Market that has no added sugar, just apples and cinnamon. It's very good on toast or English muffins. I happen to be out of it right now or I would give you the name of it. I'm sure there are other apple butters that have no added sugar or artificial sweeteners.

There are fruit preserves with no added sugar. Also, I found mashed banana to be a surprisingly good topper for toast, as it is gently sweet and 100% fruit.

For a delicious change, try your regular hummus recipe but use green peas instead of chickpeas. It is delicious! I have the idea from a book called vegan bite by bite. There is also a recipe in it called Mock Liver Pate which makes a great sandwich spread.

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion (2 cups) diced small
2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
10 medium button mushrooms, sliced
11?4 cup walnuts
1?2 cup frozen peas (Stage 2) or
1 – 15 ounce can of peas (Stage 1) 21?2 teaspoons sea salt
1?4 teaspoon black pepper, ground Tiny pinch cayenne pepper
MIX in BLENDER

Any more would be a lack of respect to the author. I highly recommend the book.

Hi Kiwi - have you tried tempeh in a sandwich?Divine! Or see if you can find a product called "daiya" in your cheese or deli section. It's a "cheese" made from pea protein and makes the most awesome grilled cheese sandwich. (it comes in cheddar, mozzarella or pepper jack flavours) You won't want to eat this too often but on occasion - Y.U.M. Or grill a portabella mushroom and put in a bun with some red onion, pickle and a little sugar-free ketchup...Y.U.M. Smile

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the great ideas. I was getting bored with my usual fare.

Unfortunately no Daiya cheese in New Zealand. We do get the UK cheesley imported which is good in small amounts but expensive. There is another brand of soy cheese that I wouldnt feed to an animal - yuck. I guess someone must buy it since it is still being made.

I will look for an apple butter with no added sugar and try some temph on my toast.

I like Smucker's Just Fruit marmalade. That has no sugars, just fruit juice for sweetening.

And tofu "egg" salad or chickpea "tuna" salad sandwiches are my favorites right now.
