Vegan Cheese & Onion Sandwich Filler

You know those pots of sandwich fillers that you can buy from supermarkets? I used to like cheese and onion ones when I was vegetarian, so this is my veganised version. The benefit of this one is you can eat it cold on a sandwich, or heat it up and serve warm. It melts like a dream, making it absolutely perfect for cheese on toast

Yield; 320g/11oz sandwich filler (590kcal in total approx) enough for 5 or 6 sandwiches Prep time; 5 minutes

You’ll need;

  1. 150g/5oz vegan cheese, grated (use your favourite)
  2. Half an onion, very finely chopped
  3. Four tablespoons of dairy free creme fraiche (I used one by Oatly, it’s available in most supermarkets, it’ll be in the chilled free from section)
  4. Half a teaspoon of dijon mustard
  5. Half a teaspoon of dried parsley
  6. Salt and black pepper to taste

Method;

  • Just pop everything into a mixing bowl and gently fold together with a wooden spoon until well combined. If you want to recreate the mix I made, use half a red onion, 100g of mature cheddar alternative by ASDA and 50g red Leicester by Sheese (which you can find in Sainsbury’s). You can use the mixture as a filling for sandwiches, wraps, or a jacket potato topping. You’ll probably be able to get five or six sandwiches out of this amount, depending on how generously you fill them
  • You can also add some on top of lightly toasted bread, then heat for a few minutes under a warm grill. You won’t need to heat to be very high to melt it, and you’ll have some tasty vegan cheese on toast

Just look at that cheese and onion melted perfection. Great on it’s own, or serve with a warm bowl of soup for a hearty lunch
