Grilled Smokey Bean Sandwich

I crave grilled cheese sammiches. And I crave them a lot. I know for a fact that my cravings have nothing to do with cheese (I can't even tell you what real cheese tastes like anymore). My cravings do, however, have everything to do with the skillet fried bread. I mean, come on, who doesn't love that golden fried goodness?! Are you still trying to think of someone? Yeah, me too.


For lunch today, (and dinner last night) I had this craving, but I'm not a fan of cheese substitutes. Like most things in life, they are good in moderation, and that's how I use moderation, and every time I make a dish with cheese substitutes I usually finish up my meal thinking that the meal was in no way profitable from using these substitutes. That's how I felt last night when I made a grilled cheese sandwich using a vegan mozzerella substitute, basil, red onion and avocado. Sure it was delish but I couldn't help but think I would have liked it better if there wasn't any "cheese" on it.

So here's how I fixed my grilled cheese sammich craving in a healthier-and-cheaper-than-overly-processed-overly-priced-vegan-cheese-substitutes way.

1/2 c cooked white beans
1/4 c cashews
1 roma tomato
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt, to taste
cayenne, to taste
  1. Put all that stuff up in yo blender and do the dang thing. 
  2. Sandwich between two vegan buttered slices of your favorite vegan bread (or tortillas...this would make bomb quesadillas) and grill to your liking on the range top.
