Sweet, homemade fig spread with vegan cream cheese stuffed between bread slices makes for a marvelous brunch recipe.
Ingredients
  • 1 Very Ripe Banana, Peeled
  • ⅓ C. Unsweetened Non-Dairy Milk
  • 1 T. Ground Flaxseed
  • 2 tsp. Nutritional Yeast
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1 C. Dried Figs, Chopped without Stems
  • 3 T. Warm Water
  • 4 T. Go Veggie Original Cream Cheese
  • 8 Small Pieces of Whole Wheat Bread
  • Coconut Oil for the Pan
Instructions
  1. Using a food processor, puree the banana, non-dairy milk, flaxseed, nutritional yeast and salt together until smooth. Pour into a shallow bowl and set Rinse out the food processor and place the figs and warm water into it. Process until it creates a thick paste, this may take a minute or two. Scrape the walls of the processor so that there are no chunks.
  2. Taking your bread, spread the fig mixture over 4 slices of bread. Spread 1 T. of Go Veggie Cream Cheese evenly over each of the remaining 4 slices. Sandwich each fig & cream cheese together and press firmly (don’t squish them).
  3. Warm a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat with a very thin coating of coconut oil. Once hot, dunk each side of the “sandwich” into the banana mixture and let the excess drip off.
  4. Place it on the skillet and cook until it stops sizzling (usually 3-4 minutes), then use a thin spatula to flip, making sure to get completely under the bread and coating so that it does not tear off.
